ARE YOU A SKILLED TRADESPERSON?
We generally have a real need for skilled tradespeople (electricians, plumbers, carpenters etc), in particular those who can self-certify their work. The work would vary from minor maintenance to helping with the conversion of new micro-flats.
CAN YOU HELP CONVERT CONTAINERS INTO MICRO-FLATS?
We anticipate that we will have limited need for a few practically minded volunteers to help with container conversions. This would either be at Spring Street or another site close to Bristol. This activity is really suited to skilled tradespeople (perhaps retired) or competent home DIY folk.
PROVIDE GENERAL PRACTICAL HELP
Periodically we need people to do various practical things – e.g. painting/decorating, minor maintenance tasks (home DIY type jobs), sorting out donated items.
SUPPORT OUR WELL-BEING CENTRE
This is still a fairly new facility at Spring Street, to further support the well-being of our residents. The services we offer will evolve over time, depending on people’s needs and availability of suitable volunteers.
We already offer, or plan to offer:
An area for training activities (e.g. first aid, life skills, financial management..)
Yoga, Pilates, meditation classes etc
Help with form-filling and job applications (e.g. on a PC).
If you have skills that could support this, then please get in touch.
