Ending homelessness, rebuilding lives

Volunteer development

We recognise the value and impact of the skills, time and experience our volunteers donate towards our work to end homelessness.

Our Volunteer Development Pathway

We know that our volunteers give their time for different reasons. At St Mungo’s, we are committed to progression at all levels and we support and develop our volunteers to ensure that they are best placed to make progress in their careers.

Our volunteers specifically looking to progress into employment will have access to our newly created Volunteer Development Pathway (VDP) which supports volunteers in how they can use their skills to apply and secure employment opportunities.


Being a volunteer with St Mungo’s means that you have free access to our e-Learning portal and we invite you to monthly online events to support your development.

Our e-Learning courses and our online events are regularly reviewed and new training sessions are added to ensure we are giving volunteers the skills and knowledge to develop. 

Amie's experience

“The volunteer team really make you feel valued as a volunteer. Volunteers are integral to the people St Mungo’s support and their progression in moving away from the streets.”

Amie’s journey with St Mungo’s began in September 2019 as a Mental Health Volunteer for one of our Bristol services.
