Volunteers are an integral part of St Mungo's.

From supporting our outreach teams with StreetLink referrals, to teaching art classes or providing psychotherapy, our volunteers are vital in helping people in their recovery from homelessness.

Last year more than 450 volunteers supported clients in our emergency hotels and other frontline services.

Jeremy and Wendy's experience

My role does make a difference. It may be seen as a small contribution, but if a lot of people contribute small that then grows into something big.

Jeremy and Wendy have been volunteering with First Response, a service that helps the outreach team find people who are sleeping rough quicker, since March 2022. They share why they volunteer and why you should too.
