Volunteering role profiles
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 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.
Street 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. The services they provide include Sign posting, advice on sexual health and safer injecting practise, 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 undertake RU CLEAR screenings and hepatitis B vaccinations and encourage women to access the full sexual health services at the MASH Clinic. They provide information about other services and help make referrals when needed.
Mentors work with individuals on a one to one basis to help them achieve their individual goals.
