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?

  • Volunteers will be leading/assisting casual football sessions with individuals of all levels and abilities.
  • 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.
  • Help to get our over 55 clients active in football by providing a fun and inclusive environment.

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

  • We are looking for a confident and sociable individual to set up and lead a football session, once a week. Applicants who are qualified football coaches will be able to lead our sessions, but those who are not are more than welcome to assist with the sessions.
  • Volunteers must be reliable and able to commit for a minimum of 12 weeks.

What else do I need to know?

  • Our football sessions are running across London, but at the moment our priorities are: Camden (Tuesdays), Islington (Monday and/or Thursdays), Lambeth (Mondays) and Redbridge (Wednesdays).
  • 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.
  • There is a possibility of more volunteering opportunities across the London boroughs coming soon.

Expenses

  • SHP will be able to reimburse travel for volunteering.

Background checks
