Step Up Volunteering

Volunteering placements take place weekly in the kitchen

Step Up provides people who use our service with volunteering placements across different departments at The Connection. The placements run for 4-6 weeks and are available to people who looking to develop their skills and gain current experience in a safe and supportive environment.

The process is designed to replicate the working world and people apply for vacancies and attend relevant training to fulfil the role. The placements help people step up into further training, volunteering or work.

A variety of placements are available including:

  • The kitchen – helping prepare food for the day centre
  • Day & Night Centre – showing new people around the building and providing people with emotional support
  • Fundraising – supporting the team with events
  • IT & Digital Media – supporting clients who attend groups
