Training is mandatory for any volunteer who wants to work with Inn Churches as part of the Winter Shelter.

You must be 18 or older to volunteer while the shelter is in operation.

Training sessions (of approximately two hours) will be offered at all of the hosting church venues. If you cannot make the training at your hosting church don’t worry, you can attend another hosting church venue of your choice provided that it takes place before your hosting week. Please book early with the hosting church leader.

If you do not have a DBS check (formerly a CRB disclosure) and want to volunteer, please contact your local church to start the application process for a DBS check for vulnerable adults, which can take up to three months. Volunteers with existing DBS checks for children or vulnerable adults (church or employment sector) will be accepted if they less than six months old.

Team Leaders will also be required to attend planning meetings.
