Marylebone Day Centre
The Marylebone Day Centre is for homeless women, including refugees and asylum seekers. The centre runs a Rough-Sleepers Drop-In and the Meaningful Activity Programme. Ladies registered with the Day Centre have access to:
Breakfast (Mon-Fri) (subject to availability).
The meaningful Activity Programme includes classes and workshops about: volunteering, learning & development, health & wellbeing, creativity and socialising.
Below is a list of volunteering roles needed in the Marylebone Day Centre. Please note that our Day Centre opportunities are open to female volunteers only.
Do you play the guitar? Music lessons are incredibly popular with the ladies at the Marylebone Project and we are currently looking for a talented musician to share their gift with our women.
We would be delighted to offer weekly small group tutoring sessions, taking place on a weekday or evening convenient for you.
Please email a completed application form
to our Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
, outlining any previous experience of playing the guitar or music tuition. This opportunity is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Services (DBS) check and references.
Language Tutor (Italian or Spanish)
We would like to offer beginners level tutoring in either Spanish or Italian language to the ladies at the Marylebone Project. As a Volunteer Language Tutor, you would support our ladies to gain the confidence and basic skills required to speak, read and write in Italian or Spanish.
If you're confident in your use of either language, would be comfortable leading a weekly tutoring session for a small group of service users, and are interested in empowering homeless women to learn new skills, we'd be delighted to hear from you! Although previous tutoring experience is not essential, some experience of skill sharing may be beneficial.
The Marylebone Project will provide any resources required to deliver the tutoring and we reimburse all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for our volunteers.
