Our vision is of a society where homelessness no longer exists and everyone has a place to call home

About this volunteer role

Our Volunteer Drivers collect food donations from across London that we use in our kitchen. These collections are on weekdays, usually between 9am – 12.00pm and take around 2.5 hrs. We also receive donations of clothing and food from our various corporate supporters in London, particularly from September – mid January.

On a more ad hoc basis, Volunteer Drivers also help us to move clients into new accommodation and transport equipment we use for fundraising events like our Garden Party and Comedy Night.

We are committed to creating a safe, non – judgmental space for everyone here at The Passage, regardless of who they are and there is an expectation that volunteers understand this and behave accordingly towards people using our services, other volunteers, visitors and members of staff.

Main duties

  • Drivers book a van using our business Zipcar account
  • Driving a van around London to collect food from regular donors
  • Unloading donations at The Passage
  • Supporting client moves by moving their belongings and furniture when they find accommodation

Desired qualities

  • Be aged 21 or over – this is the minimum age to hire a Zipcar vehicle
  • Have held a driving license for at least 1 year
  • Confident and competent driver

How we will support you

Volunteers are essential to The Passage and our success. Our team of volunteers add tremendous value to our services from serving food and driving to providing complementary therapies and facilitating English conversation classes.

All volunteers benefit from

  • Induction and training including introduction to homelessness, personal & professional boundaries and equality, diversity & inclusion
  • Learning more about homelessness and the challenges faced by people using our services
  • Flexibility of shift times and a wide variety of roles
  • Travel expenses reimbursed
