Could you be a Vennture volunteer and be part of our ambitious and committed team that helps people rebuild their lives and prevents the revolving door of homelessness.

#dosomethingmeaningful

Vennture supported by our partners are now recruiting volunteers for a pilot project to support individuals who are without a place to call home.

The model is promoted as ‘new way of working’ through partnership BRAVE, developed as 3 tier response to Covid 19 to prevent homelessness and harm of vulnerable individuals in Herefordshire.

Vennture and BRAVE partners are now recruiting volunteers in 3 key areas to evidence impact of Volunteering adopting Link Worker relational approach. These are:

  • Supporting those who are street homeless (rough sleeping).
  • Those in temporary accommodation, looking to move on.
  • Those who have a home and supporting them to sustain their home and those who are at risk of losing their homes.

We are looking for resilient and highly motivated people who have empathy and hard-edged compassion. You will need good communication skills and be able to support individuals to believe that they can achieve their goals and transformation is possible.

You will receive training to understand the issues faced by those experiencing homelessness or those with insecure housing or at risk of homelessness. We will assist you to develop the capacity, knowledge, understanding, skills and personal qualities to work closely with the individual and their Link Worker and follow clear safeguarding procedures.

Christian vision, ethos and principles underpin the way Vennture operates, and it is expected that the successful applicant will have empathy with and be able to embrace our Venn values of Faith, Love and Endeavour.  They will connect to our sense of purpose and vision and be able to integrate swiftly and successfully into our high-performing and friendly team and enjoy being part of a challenging and ground-breaking initiative.
