About the project

  • The Huggard Centre provides support to people who are sleeping rough in Cardiff;
  • SVC are working in partnership with Huggard to provide social and emotional enrichment to clients at the centre.

Aim

  • This project is invaluable to clients as befriending improves perceptions of well-being, reduces stress, and increases self-esteem and empowerment. 

Volunteer role

  • This project is an opportunity for volunteers to befriend and facilitate activities for clients;
  • A group of volunteers will facilitate a 1-hour session each week for clients at the centre on a Tuesday at 2pm;
  • As volunteers, you will be involved in running a range of activities for the clients at the centre. We encourage volunteers to run sessions inspired by personal skills and interests, these could include: karaoke, games, pamper sessions, arts & crafts, playing sports, tea & coffee afternoons, etc.
