Volunteering role profiles
MASH Drop-In Centre Worker (Daytime and/or Evening)
Centre Workers work alongside and support other volunteers and paid staff. They act as a first point of contact for service users accessing services at the MASH Drop-In Centre, and encourage users to engage with services. They help to assess user needs and provide information and support on a range of issues. They also have an important “hospitality” role, providing refreshments and ensuring everyone feels welcome.
Mobile Drop-In Outreach Worker (Evening and/or Late Night)
Outreach workers work as part of a small team. They visit areas of the city frequented by street based female sex workers in the MASH Van from 8pm – midnight. The services they provide include advice on sexual health and safer injecting practice, providing a needle exchange and sharing “Dodgy Punter” reports.
Sauna Outreach Worker
Sauna Outreach workers go out in pairs to visit women working in saunas. They provide information about other services and help make referrals when needed.
Occasional and specialist volunteers
Some people with specialist skill volunteer for us on an occasional or one off basis. If you have a skill like hairdressing, arts or cooking you’d like to offer get in touch and we’ll look at how we could work together.
