Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.
Crisis Skylight Brent, based in Harlesden, provides person-centred support that help people leave homelessness. We are dynamic, value led team that is pro-active in its approach to making change not only to our members but more widely within our local area.
About the role
As Volunteer Co-ordinator, you will be part of Skylight team recruiting volunteers to support the delivery of the Skylight Service and supporting our members to access volunteering opportunities as they strive to end their homelessness. The main responsibilities include; the efficient running of all volunteer activities, developing member volunteering activities linked with our local and national influencing and campaigning, and working with the National Volunteering Manager in the implementation of the Crisis Volunteering Strategy.

We believe diversity is a strength, and our aim is to make sure that Crisis truly reflects the communities we serve. We are actively working towards our organisation being a place where everyone can thrive and make their best contribution to our mission of ending homelessness for good. We know that the more perspectives, voices, and experiences we can bring to this work, the better. We particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of homelessness, and people from all marginalised groups, communities and backgrounds.
