No Second Night Out Volunteers
No Second Night Out Pilot
Each week about 40 people are seen rough sleeping for the first time in London.
No Second Night Out aims to prevent someone new to rough sleeping, and already in a dangerous situation, from spiralling downwards into a long term life on the streets. Sleeping rough is a concern to all communities and businesses, and there should be no need for it in the capital in the 21st century.
You could be part of this new exciting project helping to end rough sleeping in London by the end of 2012.
We are looking for dynamic, motivated and reliable volunteers who are passionate about ending rough seeping and who are able to relate well with people from all walks of life.
There are a number of roles available and full details of the roles and application process are below.
All application forms for Helpline Volunteers, Reconnections Volunteers and Assessment Volunteers should be sent directly to Tessa, No Second Night Out Administrator via email firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applications is the 11th of April and volunteer interviews will take place on or soon after the 15th April.
There will be a second recruitment of volunteers later in the month.

The Reconnections team support No Second Night Out clients to connect with accomodation and other services in their home areas, enabling them better access to support and funding. Volunteers will assist the team in their work with clients.

Reconnections Team Volunteer Role Description
Members of the public, local businesses, homelessness services throughout London and other stakeholders will be referring clients to The No Second Night Out project via the main helpline.
Volunteers will help answering calls, taking messages and passing those on to outreach teams. In this way you will be part of ensuring that all those that need the support of the project recieve it as soon as possible, helping to ensure no one spends a second night on the streets.
Helpline Volunteers Role Description
No Second Night Out is a pilot project, hosted with Broadway focussed on helping those who find themselves rough sleeping on the streets of London for the first time. The project will ensure there is a rapid response to new rough sleepers, and will provide an offer that means they do not have to sleep out for a second night.
