Home for Good is a volunteer-powered, London-wide befriending project. Our volunteers provide bespoke support to vulnerable and formerly homeless clients who have been resettled into their own accommodation, and/or are facing isolation. The purpose of the service is to empower people to establish connections and thrive in what will often be a new community for them. If you want to make a lasting difference to someone’s life, this is an opportunity for you.

What will you be doing?
• You will be matched with a client with the aim of assisting them to get to know their local area and link into local community services
• Providing reliable, regular and sustained contact
• Encouraging the achievement of personal goals
• Participating in activities of interest to the client and empowering them to continue independently

All volunteers receive comprehensive training and ongoing support from The Passage. We offer regular supervision meetings every six weeks to discuss progress and any concerns. Expenses are covered by The Passage.
