Volunteering at St Mungo's

Join our online volunteering event

Last year tens of thousands of people experienced homelessness or rough sleeping in England. That’s why we’re here.

We’re on the streets. Every day. Every night. Rain or shine. Meeting people who are sleeping rough and finding them a bed. We’re here for those who don’t know where to turn and for those who feel the world has turned its back on them.

We're always looking for amazing volunteers who want to join us and make a difference.

Join this event 18:00-19:00 to hear from a number of St Mungo’s services: StreetLink, First Response, Outreach and No Second Night Out. To learn how you can help make it someone’s last night on the street by volunteering with St Mungo’s this winter. We have volunteer roles available for you across London, Brighton, Oxford, Reading, Leicester, Bournemouth and Bristol.

Sara's experience

When you hear about other people's experiences and establish a connection with that person, you start to realise what really matters.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Sara volunteered in our mental health service in Bath, supporting people who have experienced homelessness and adapting to volunteering during an unprecedented time.
