As part of the second stage program, clients get the opportunity to undertake voluntary placements in the community in order to prepare them for their new life in recovery.


Alan volunteers with the Sandwich People.

“While I was homeless, The Salvation Army looked after me – they gave me food, clothes and sleeping bags and now I feel I owe a debt to The Salvation Army so I volunteer at Booth House with the Sandwich People. I really enjoy the volunteering and I’ll do anything here that I’m asked to do because they make me feel so welcome. The staff here make me feel so welcome, they’re so helpful and they always go the extra mile and everyone here makes you feel you’re part of something”.
