Crisis at Christmas 2017 will be running from the 22nd to the 30th December in 9 centres across London. The project is a lifeline for thousands of homeless people. We offer support, companionship, activities and vital services, during the holiday period and help people to take their first steps out of homelessness.
 
To make this happen, we need to find more than 10,000 volunteers. Volunteers can sign up as a General, Logistics, Service or Activities and Entertainments volunteer.

please follow the link below for more information on the various roles.

Kingston upon Thames United Charities are looking for trustees who can help us  work to:
meet the needs of elderly people, as the population ages
provide housing for people of modest means
provide oversight of our heritage buildings
improve how we meet the fundamental aims of the charity.

The almshouses provide 25 homes in a historic setting in Kingston upon Thames, providing accommodation for elderly people of modest means.

The role of trustee suits someone who has had several year’s substantial responsibility in a senior job, and has professional qualifications.

If you volunteer with an organisation in Kingston and have an interest in helping other people of any age to better health and wellbeing, we have some exciting training for you.

The Health Navigator Training is a 3 hour interactive learning session at Hillcroft College, Surbiton (we pay travel expenses)

The training is run through Kingston Voluntary Action as part of our Kingston Digital Health Project. It is a practical hands-on session giving you the skills and knowledge to help local people find their way around a wealth of online health information.

Activities and resources include:

  • a walk-through of the NHS Choices website with themed searches and quizzes
  • a detailed look through local health directories
  • a practical session installing and using recommended health apps
  • raising awareness of the lack of basic digital skills and where to signpost people for training

There will be plenty of time built in for discussion around the practical application of your new skills and knowledge – how to use them within your organisation, or pass on to your family and friends.

The training is run through Kingston Voluntary Action as part of our Kingston Digital Health Project funded by the Department of Health. All learners receive a certificate of participation from Kingston Voluntary Action at a ‘graduation’ ceremony.

 

For more information about the training – contact Philippa Leary our Kingston Digital Health Project Co-ordinator by email – philippaleary@superhighways.org.uk. Or call 020 8255 8040.
