Volunteer with Careforce

Careforce Mission Statement
To serve evangelical churches and organisations by placing Christian volunteers aged 17-30 where help is most needed in the UK.

To enable Christians from Britain and other countries world-wide to serve for a year in the UK in an area of need alongside local Christians.

Keen that your gap year has some real plan and purpose? Looking for an opportunity to serve God and those in real need? Careforce is just the place for you to spend your year.

Since 1980 over 2000 Christians have completed a year in the UK as Careforce volunteers - all have survived to tell the tale!

You don’t need money. You don’t need vast experience. You do need a living faith and a genuine desire to serve. We are looking for 100 such people to start in September 2007! All will receive dedicated support and encouragement from Careforce and their placements.

Remember that Careforce volunteers help to transform local communities in the UK through selfless service for Jesus! If you are keen to be part of this exciting ministry then we look forward to hearing from you very soon.
To maintain an active responsibility for all volunteers throughout their year and to act in partnership with the placement supervisors and under the direction of the Careforce Council.
To ensure all volunteers have clearly identified people for support on their placements. These to include, but not limited to, work supervisors to whom volunteers are responsible day by day and pastoral carers to encourage and to be trusted friends. To ensure volunteers meet regularly with each.

To encourage those volunteers not on church placements to find and get involved in fellowships local to their placements including, where possible, Sunday services and other church activities as their duties allow.

To encourage volunteers to maintain links with their own 'home' churches, and to encourage those churches to recognise and support the work of 'their' volunteer throughout the year, through prayer, communication, commissioning, and where possible a gift to Careforce.

To match all volunteers to a Careforce staff worker, who will visit them on placement at least twice a year, and be available to all volunteers for the whole year to provide support, correspondence, a listening ear and regular prayer.

To encourage and assist all volunteers to form area groups that will meet regularly to provide peer support for each other.

To put on two national conferences during the year for all volunteers, to provide Bible teaching, relevant practical advice, fellowship, inspiration and spiritual refreshment
Accommodation and Food - To ensure all volunteers have comfortable, stress-free accommodation and that full provision is made for a balanced diet of food.

Time off - To ensure all volunteers have regular time off, amounting to one day a week and at least one week's paid leave for every three months worked.

Financial matters - To ensure all volunteers receive the stipulated amount of living allowance each week and that no volunteer has to leave a year's placement with less money than they started due to the direct demands of the Careforce year.

Sponsorship - To invite all volunteers to raise some financial support for Careforce and to assist those able to do so with relevant literature and encouragement.
Insurance - To ensure all volunteers are insured for Public Liability and Personal Accident, either through Careforce or their placement.
