Could you make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people at Horsham Y Centre (YMCA)?
At YMCA Horsham, part of YMCA DownsLink group, we are looking for volunteer chaplains to help run an informal weekly chaplaincy evening to support the residents of Horsham Y Centre. This project houses 50 young people 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 Horsham Y Centre is a 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? We are looking for people of faith who are kind, good listeners, non-judgemental, with a sense of humour and a love of young people. You would work in a small team and have some training and support, including an experienced Volunteer Chaplaincy Coordinator, Judi Cox. Our chaplaincy service has been established at Horsham Y Centre for 4 years and is deeply valued by staff and young people.
Chaplaincy takes place on Thursdays evenings from 9.30-11pm. We would ask for a commitment of one evening every 2-3 weeks. There is more information here
