Volunteer at Crisis at Christmas in South Wales

Crisis at Christmas is a unique volunteer effort that provides immediate help for homeless people at a critical time of year. By volunteering with Crisis this Christmas you can make a real difference to people experiencing homelessness.

Crisis Skylight South Wales have events running throughout December, with a wellbeing week kicking off on 17 December in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot, followed by a hot meal and Christmas celebration on 28 December in Swansea.

Volunteers are essential in the running of Crisis at Christmas. Roles include general volunteers to help with the smooth running of all events and ensure a warm and inviting atmosphere for members. Planning and preparation volunteers to help with sorting donations as well as Wellbeing professionals to offer our guests the chance to relax and be pampered.

Volunteers can also get involved at our annual Ice Breaker on 8 December in Pontypridd where swimmers brave the icy waters in support of Crisis and at our Carol Concert on 19 December in Swansea.

We are looking for wellbeing professionals to be able to provide sessions for members during our wellbeing week in December. Volunteers help give members the chance to relax and feel restful during a hand or Indian head massage, reflexology or mindfulness session (we are also open to other ideas).

Our health and wellbeing week provides information and advice to members as well as the opportunity for relaxation and a bit of pampering in one of our hub settings where Crisis staff are also on hand to help out. Volunteers help ensure the days runs smoothly, make people feel welcome and manage an appointment system so members can access complimentary therapies and information on offer.
