3. Supporting people with 'hoarding' behaviours
Do you have an interest in supporting people with complex needs? Are you happy to provide ongoing help to an individual?
The Making Space project, which empowers people to understand why they gather possessions and why it's challenging to let go of these, provides a rewarding and innovative opportunity for individuals who are not afraid of a challenge. The aim of the project is to help our clients make space, not only in their homes but also their lives and minds.
4. Information gathering for fundraising
We need dynamic individuals who enjoy interacting with people to support our Casework team with gathering information for fundraising applications.
