Homeless centre needs volunteers

Have your say

A DROP-in shelter for homeless people in Rotherham is desperately seeking volunteers

Shiloh Rotherham need people with varied skills, whether to assist with moves into new premises or with fundraising, office administration or helping out in the kitchen.

The charity has been in operation for 19 years and receives no funding from the Government.

This year has seen a 50 per cent increase in demand for their services as a consequence of the current economic climate.

Trustee Chris Woods said: “We really need to assist more of the local community in Rotherham and to do that well we need more support not only with finance but also with volunteers.

“We receive no statutory funding for our services and we have no staff as we are completely volunteer run, but we need more to support this crisis.”
