  • Volunteer Chaplains, YMCA Worthing Foyer

    Type: Other By: Diocese of Chichester When: 27 February 2017

    Could you make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people at Worthing Foyer?

    At YMCA DownsLink group we are looking for volunteer chaplains to support one of our supported housing projects, Worthing Foyer.

    This project houses 29 residents at any one time, aged 16-25, most of whom stay around 2 years. These young people are usually homeless – i.e. they cannot live at home or do not have a home for a variety of reasons.

    Our work is challenging but Worthing Foyer is an inspiring place where young people can get support and encouragement to turn their lives around.

    Could you be a volunteer chaplain and add real value to the work we do at Worthing Foyer?

    We are looking for people of faith who are kind, good listeners, non-judgemental and with a sense of humour. You would work in a small team, and have some training and support, including a Volunteer chaplaincy coordinator. Our chaplaincy service is new to Worthing Foyer and we hope to start soon in 2017.

    We would ask for an initial commitment of one midweek evening (or daytime) every 2-3 weeks for a year.

    Closing date: 27 February
