Part-Time & Full-Time Volunteers | Depaulcharity

Depaul helps people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Part-Time & Full-Time Volunteers

Our volunteers help us tremendously by carrying out a wide range of roles across services, administration, fundraising and communications. 

Volunteers in our services help service users feel valued, feel at home and also help them to develop a sense of self-worth and confidence. Our service users come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have a range of complex issues. These may include mental health issues, domestic violence, bereavement, unemployment, alcohol and addiction issues, etc.

Those who volunteer by helping us out with administration tasks and in our Fundraising & Communications Department, provide vital assistance in supporting the work of our services and those experiencing homelessness. 

Part-time volunteers give a minimum of 2-4 hours per week. Full-time volunteers give 20+ hours per week. These hours may vary depending on the specific role or volunteer's availability.

Please see our list of Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
