Community Support Volunteer

Homeless Regular - less than 6 months East Perth WA

About this opportunity

St Bart's House provide safe, supported accommodation and services to people who need it the most, regardless of background, age, gender or ethnicity.

The purpose of Saint Bartholomew's House is to encourage clients who have a previous experience or are at risk of homelessness and who have a range of needs to participate in activities that will enhance social interaction, communication, motivation and self esteem, to support their reintegration back into the community.

We're currently taking expressions of interest in for volunteers to take consumers to access community outreach on a Wednesday or Thursday between 12 and 2.30pm.

This would involve transporting consumers 2 at a time using one of our vehicles, between our East Perth office and the outreach program in Osborne park.

Experience with social services or previous experience in working with people who have experienced homelessness or similar would be an advantage.

St Bart’s is an equal opportunity employer which values diversity and inclusion and we encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally diverse backgrounds, people who identify as LGBTI and people with a disability.
