    Could you make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people (16-25) in Crawley?

    At YMCA Crawley, part of the YMCA DownsLink group, we are currently looking for volunteer chaplains to help run an informal weekly chaplaincy evening, centred on a meal, to support the residents of Crawley Foyer. This project houses 45 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 Crawley Foyer 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 that we do? As a volunteer chaplain, you will come alongside the young people to listen and support. 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 will be part of a small team, and have some training and support. Our chaplaincy service has been established at other centres for a number of years and has been deeply valued by staff and young people. We are now creating a new team of chaplains for the Crawley Foyer.

    Chaplaincy will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6.00-8.00pm, based around a meal. We would ask for a commitment of one evening every 2-3 weeks.

    Interested? Please contact Sue Anson (YMCA Chaplain for North Sussex) for more details, on: 07557855779 or sue.anson@ymcadlg.org

  • Bishop's Champions for Family Support Work

    Type: Other By: Diocese of Chichester When:

    We are looking to recruit volunteer Bishop's Champions to support and enhance the work of Family Support across the diocese.

    Chichester Association for Family Support Work is a diocesan charity that seeks to work with families in need. It has a particularly strong role in areas of deprivation.

    The Champions will play a key role in helping FSW meet its strategic objectives to strengthen the links between the Association and the Diocese, increase awareness of its work, and optimise income generation. They will promote the charity’s work within one of the Archdeaconries of the Diocese by delivering talks to local networks and organisations.

    This role will help ensure that the Churches become aware of our existence and understand what we do and how to access our services. Another key part of the role will be to support fundraising in line with the strategic funding plan making the Director and Director of Fundraising and Marketing aware of potential leads and new funds that are available locally.

    You will have the ability to inspire people about the work of FSW and be a confident communicator with good organisational skills. Some experience of fundraising would be an advantage. This is a voluntary role, but all expenses will be paid. We anticipate it may take up to 16-24 hours per month.
