Join the Number 11 team

Number 11 is like one big family and we’d love for you to become part of it. So much of the fantastic work that we do is down to our amazing volunteers, who fulfil a number of roles to help determine the best possible experience for our clients. This may be:

  • Working 1-on-1 with people facing challenging situations by helping to bring stability and providing personal advocacy.
  • Cooking up some quality, nutritious food for up to 25 people – some of the best conversations take place when we eat together.
  • Delivering a range of activities and workshops which are designed to tackle isolation, raise aspiration and promote positive self esteem.
  • Building positive relationships and providing a listening ear to those who need to share their story.

There are so many ways for you to get stuck in.

Why not use what you have to make a difference? Whether you are just able to give 3 hours here and there, or want to get fully stuck in and go for 2 days a week, we’ve got roles for you.

The rewards of becoming part of our team are many. We’ll make sure you’re well-trained and supported, and we’ll provide opportunities to develop your skills and experience. You’ll get to meet some amazing new faces and make an impact on the lives of people in our community.

What’s the process?

We strive to provide the highest possible service to our clients. As such we want to make sure we’re a good fit for you and you’re a good fit for us. Before any new volunteer starts we ask you to make contact with us and fill out an application form.

After this you’ll come we make arrangements for you to start a trial period. This will give you a chance to meet clients, see what we do and work alongside our amazing team!

If everything goes smoothly and you’d still like to volunteer with us, we’ll get you trained up for the role you’ll be doing. If you’re working 1-to-1 with clients, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in a variety of in-house and external training sessions, which are designed to upskill and broaden your understanding. You’ll also receive ongoing training to ensure good practice such as Safeguarding and Equality & Diversity.

If you’re happy and we’re happy by this point, you’ll get a Number 11 top and you’ll officially become part of the team. We can then sign you up to serving at Number 11 on a specific day of the week.
