WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

  • WE WANT TO HELP TO AS MANY AS WE CAN

    You can help us in a number of ways, such as giving us your time to volunteer, making a donation, giving us goods or providing services.

  • YOUR SUPPORT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

    We always need food and clothing for our clients, furniture for their rooms, and food for our cafe. During the winter, we also need sleeping bags for our night shelter.

  • PASS ON SKILLS, MENTOR, LEAD AND ORGANISE

    We try to offer our clients a range of activities, on and off site, so that they can occupy their time constructively, helping them to move forwards to an independent life.

  • HELP US FUND RAISE AND PROMOTE OUR CAUSE

    Not having been a charity for very long, we are really new to this game. With imminent cuts to our usual funding streams in the offing, we need to get up to speed very quickly. If you can help, either with ideas, or by putting other people’s ideas into action, we’d love to hear from you.

WHAT DOES A COSGARNE VOLUNTEER DO?

All sorts of things – from teaching cooking skills to leading arts and crafts sessions, taking residents on fishing trips, feeding the Llama, helping our maintenance team out with building tasks, administration and anything else that can support us in our mission to alleviate homelessness and support people to gain confidence and live more independently.

The main thing is that volunteers share our ethos and – it doesn’t matter if you have a little time to give or a lot, we welcome volunteers with a range of skills and interests. All volunteers have an induction and have support with training should they need it and many people who volunteer with us go on to employment having increased their confidence and gained valuable work experience with us. We take students on placements and those who need observation time and can help volunteers with references and networking for future placements. If you are interested in volunteering with Cosgarne we’d love to hear from you.
