Volunteer with Oasis Aquila Housing

Volunteer at our Projects

Volunteering helps improve the quality of life of Oasis Aquila Housing service users who may often feel isolated and lonely.  A Volunteer Befriender is supported and encouraged to provide ongoing practical support and companionship to our service users.  Our current roles include:

  • providing practical support to our service users within our drop-in centres e.g. help with laundry, making refreshments, filling in forms, etc.

Contact info@oasisaquila.org for more information.

Other ways to Volunteer

We need volunteers for roles outside of the projects too. Here are just a few examples:

  • Acting as our ‘Community ambassadors’ to raise awareness and generate wider support for our work.
  • Fundraising – for more information go to Get Involved – Fundraise with Oasis Aquila Housing. 
  • Helping out at events eg. Supporting runners at the Great North Run.
  • Organising and collecting donations for the projects.

Why Volunteer at Oasis Aquila Housing?

There are a whole host of reasons for volunteering at Oasis Aquila Housing. Primarily, volunteering gives you the chance to make a real difference to vulnerable young people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness. However, you’ll also:

  • Develop skills though first-hand experience with service users;
  • Build awareness of the issues affecting disaffected young people;
  • Have the opportunity to go on a range of different training courses;
  • Get the chance to be creative (we welcome your ideas and passions for volunteering!);

If you’d like to find out more, email bdu@oasisaquila.org, or call our Central Office on 0191 477 3535.
