Home for Good are looking for compassionate individuals from all walks of life who can spare an hour or two each week to support a formerly homeless person in their local area.
A London-wide scheme, Home for Good was designed to support those who might be struggling in a new and unfamiliar area, without a support network. Clients have reported that social isolation can be a real problem, leading to a recurrence of homelessness. Home for Good community volunteers receive full training, background checks and ongoing support from The Passage. All expenses are covered. The commitment required is 6-12 months. Activities include:
- Supporting the client with emerging issues and identifying goals
- Exploring the local area and finding local services or organisations that can help
- Going for a coffee and a chat (or a trip to a gallery) to explore shared interests
