The Salvation Army is perhaps best known for its work supporting people who are experiencing homeless and those suffering with addictions and much of that is done through our residential services, known as Lifehouses. 

With more than eighty Lifehouses providing 3,230 beds across the UKI Territory, the Homelessness Services Unit provides a wide range of services to a variety of people. Many of our programmes involve volunteers to provide additional services and experiences for people experiencing homelessness, whether that be cooking classes, gardening or anything in between! This is a great opportunity to use your people skills to support those experiencing homelessness and help them move to a more positive future.

We are looking for people who are:

  • In sympathy with the aims and objectives of The Salvation Army
  • Passionate about supporting people to move towards a positive future
  • Able to keep confidences
  • Good team players
  • Willing to undertake a disclosure check and to receive Safeguarding and other relevant training
