Street Cycles Volunteer

Nina, our Street Cycle volunteer describes what they love about volunteering at Simon Community Scotland

Rough sleeping is bad for your physical and mental health, it’s unsafe, it’s risky and it’s scary. We want to help people find safe places to sleep. To do that, we need to know where people are sleeping on the streets, check-in with those we already know and meet anyone new to the streets. Making connections with people and delivering supplies is an important part of the Street Cycles Volunteer role.

Streetreads Volunteer

Charlie, our Streetreads volunteer describes what they love about volunteering at Simon Community Scotland

Homeless people are experiencing extremely difficult and often complex circumstances and we believe that books can be a place of escape and solace in a hard world.

Street Team Volunteer

Diane, our Street Team volunteer describes what they love about volunteering at Simon Community Scotland

For people who have fallen on hard times, face-to-face support can really help. Our aim is to get people off the street as quickly as possible and into accommodation where they are safe, warm and supported. This can mean meeting people, listening to their situation and accompanying them to necessary services to meet immediate needs. We stick by people and support them to work out the solutions that work best for them.

Warehouse Volunteer

Simion, our Warehouse volunteer describes what they love about volunteering at Simon Community Scotland

The warehouse is supported by the kind donations of the public. These donations enable us to make things a little easier for people experiencing homelessness.
