Location: 245 Gray's 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?

  • We are looking for volunteers to lead a two hour cycling session with clients with very limited experience with cycling.
  • 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.
  • These sessions will also involve escorting participants from their hostels to local parks where sessions will take place.

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.

Commitment

  • Volunteers need to hold a cycling instructor qualification.
  • Volunteers must be able to commit to one session a week for a minimum of 12 weeks.

What else do I need to know?

  • At this moment in time we are looking for volunteer cycling instructors to operate in Islington, Camden, Westminster, Lewisham and Wandsworth. However, as the project grows more opportunities will become available.
  • Session days and times can also be confirmed via registered interest. It should be noted that these sessions will run during working hours, predominantly between 11am-4pm.
  • The exact location of these sessions will also be confirmed through registered interest.

Expenses

  • SHP will be able to reimburse travel for volunteering.
