It's #VolunteersWeek we would like to say a huge thank you to all of our amazing volunteers. Their commitment and compassion to help people experiencing homelessness is humbling. It's only with their help that together we are able to help people start new lives off the streets.

Making cups of tea before the sun rises, a friendly chat with our friends after a cold night on the streets or helping them get a new outfit after a shower, our volunteers do so much to help our friends. They make the Beacon tick and allow our team the time to do in-depth work with people to get them into accommodation and access to other support services.

“Every single one of our Barnabus volunteers are incredible! They welcome our guests with such warmth and kindness and help create such a safe, welcoming community. We couldn't open our centre without volunteers, from those volunteers who come in before work to serve breakfast to those who manage our showers and clothing store, every single day they make a difference to people experiencing Homelessness, so I want to say a massive thankyou to them all!

Amy Godden, Support Centre Manager

As a little thank you to our volunteers for all of their hard work we have gotten each one a little treat as a thank you and will be putting on a social barbeque at the end of the month.
