2013/14 season training day
The first training day for this season was held on Saturday 26th October at Bromley Parish Church. This was a general introduction to the running of the Shelter. 48 people attended, of whom 43 completed registration forms. 26 of these were new to the Shelter.
The topics covered were
- Overview of the purpose, the roles and the work
- The guest’s perspective. This was a very moving presentation by a former guest who is now in accommodation and has begun his life anew.
- The volunteer’s perspective
- Role specific training for cooking teams and those interested in sleeping overnight with our guests.
- Maintaining boundaries so that conflict does not occur
The Shelter is actively recruiting now. Our intent is to have an excess of volunteers so that no individual has to make a big commitment in time. Even if you can volunteer just once a month, please contact us.
