Location: 245 Grays Inn Road, London, WC1X 8QY (see map)

Travel: King's Cross St Pancras station. Swinton Street bus stop.

Start date: Ongoing

What will I be doing?

  • Volunteers will be setting up and leading a 60 minute boxing session with clients of all levels and abilities.
  • Volunteers will also encourage our over 55s to participate by providing a fun, social and inclusive environment.
  • Our clients love to chat and those who volunteer are encouraged to engage with clients and motivate them to participate as little or as much as they wish.

What impact will this have?

  • Help support SHP's award winning over 55's sport and health programme, by providing a fun, social and inclusive environment to a vulnerable clientele group.
  • Help to remove the key barriers of physical activity amongst the homeless, whilst also improving the physical and mental health of our clients.
  • Build a positive social rapport with clients, offering support and an opportunity for them to engage and potentially lead sessions of their own in the future.
