EVS Supporting homeless youth in the UK Simonside House

November 15, 2012 | In: , ,

The Simonside House hostel  supports homeless young people (16 – 25 yrs old) by giving them somewhere to live and support to access training and employment opportunities.  As a volunteer you would support the young people at this hostel, by acting as advocates and role models encouraging them to engage in the training and life skills opportunities that are available.

The project, with EI-ref 2012-GB-29, will start in the summer of 2013 and will last one year. The deadline to apply is January, 2013.

Tasks: Possibilities include a range of activities from helping residents to shop for and cook a meal, engaging residents in training courses, accompanying a resident to a doctors’ appointment, running a language course in your own language, befriending new residents, helping someone to fill in a benefits form to helping a resident paint their bedroom. All the activities will be around promoting independence in a group who are currently dependent. Whilst with the project they would like to encourage you to find a Secondary Project as well as supporting you in developing your own project, thereby improving your organisational and development skills.

Project environment: Simonside House Hostel is situated in a suburban area of Newcastle, a large vibrant city in the north east of England. It has a mixed population with people from different backgrounds and vast areas of economic depression with a larger than average occurance of unemployment and homelessness. Just outside of Newcastle is very beautiful countryside within close reach and London is 4 hours away by train.  You will live with other EVS Volunteer in a large 5 bedroom house in Newcastle with their own bedroom and full cooking facilities.

Selection criteria: You should have an interest in working with young homeless people in the UK.
