It is driven and operated mainly by church volunteers who provide food, hot drinks, conversation and much needed support to anyone facing homelessness.
The Volunteer Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the lunchtime service for the Care Van, including:
- Coordinating a rota for volunteer teams so that all days have a team assigned to them ensuring continuity of service.
- Preparing sandwiches when volunteers teams are unable to supply their own.
- Organising food supplies and donations for the provision of the service, and going out with the volunteers on an average of one outreach per week.
Starting salary: £22,380 gross per annum pro rata
