WNSMK Venue Volunteer Application Form

Over 18?

For your information: Volunteer rotas may run from November to March or December to March, depending on the venue to which you are assigned. If you are unavailable on an occasional date on your assigned shift over the season we ask that you notify your Team Leader with good notice and they can help to coordinate cover. TRAINING: You will receive an email from our Operations team regarding a training date prior to the commencement of your volunteering.

WNSMK is committed to the protection of your data and will never share it with a third party. To facilitate your volunteering with us we will need to be able to contact you via email and telephone/text when necessary. We also send monthly updates to our volunteers during our operational season (Nov-Mar) related to volunteer operations. Would you also like to receive additional occasional updates on the work of our charity and how you can support us?

How frequently are you willing to volunteer?

Are you willing to be contacted for emergency cover on additional days if needed?

Please select preferred days of the week (or for weekday welfare assistance, see last option). Please take care when selecting a venue: evening or night duties will be assigned to the day that guests arrive at the venue for the evening, morning duties will be assigned to the same venue the following morning.

What types of duties are you most interested in? (Please note the timings given below are approximate and may vary slightly according to the needs of each venue. Exact timings will be discussed and confirmed with you.)

To maintain a safe and pleasant environment for all we ask that volunteers agree to adhere to our code of conduct. (See below) * Please indicate that you have read and agree to abide by the Code of Conduct.

Have you ever been a resident of the WNSMK? (If yes then please answer the question that follows)

We welcome applications from former guests who wish to support the WNSMK, although any such volunteers must not have been resident in the night shelter in the previous season or the season in which they are volunteering. Do you confirm that you have NOT been a guest at the WNSMK during this current season (2019-20) or last winter (2018-19)?

Will this be your first season volunteering with us?
