Have you been through the process of trying to find the right house in the right place for yourself or someone you support? Do you want to share your valuable personal experiences with people going through the same thing? Then why not become a HOSmate Peer Support volunteer?
Our dedicated team of HOSmates have been supporting individuals and groups for over five years. Each HOSmate gets full training and the opportunity to use their experiences of housing to help others. This can be anything from face-to-face meetings with disabled people, to speaking to groups of disabled people and/or professionals.
You give as much, or as little, time as you wish. Any time you can give will be gratefully received by us and the people you speak to.
Volunteers can and do help us in many ways. This adds immensely to the work that we do. We’re eager to learn what skills you can bring:
- Would you like to hold a fundraising event for us?
- Do you have a skill or talent that you could bring to the team?
- Are you a social media whizz?
- Would you like to help us out regularly at events or conferences?
The list goes on and on. If you are passionate about helping disabled people, older people and disabled veterans and want to volunteer on a regular basis with us, get in touch!
We value every minute of time that people give to help us and we want to make sure that we recognise everything that people do for us, regardless of how big or small.
This year we are introducing our Micro-Volunteering programme. Perhaps you want to volunteer but don’t feel you always have time. With micro-volunteering you can volunteer when it suits you in short, bite sized chunks. This could be anything from helping us at conference stall or event, sharing your story as a case study, participating in a focus group or in one of our surveys. This can be a one-off or you can get involved whenever you have time to give.
