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 helping to get our over 55 clients active through teaching a beginners style yoga session for 45-60 minutes.
  • Volunteers will be working with clients of mixed abilities and mobility, so the yoga sessions may change on a weekly basis to suit the needs of the clients attending.
  • 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.
