We are only able to provide the services we offer because of our team of enthusiastic volunteers.
Last year Manna House was able to provide 3000 Drop-In meals and 286 hours of housing and benefits advice to residents of South Lakeland – including the 55 who were homeless. We could not do what we do without the 4000+ hours our wonderful volunteers deliver on average each year.
Our team of volunteers does need reinforcement as people move on, or as we need to enlarge the pool of skills we can call upon.
Volunteers help us in a range of tasks such as
- Property maintenance
- Fund Raising activities
- Teaching life skills (budgeting, hygiene, housekeeping etc.)
- Helping clients with computing (I.T.) skills
- Literacy and numeracy coaching
- General Support – assisting staff and clients
