CWNS Volunteer Application

Dear Volunteer

Thank you for expressing a desire to volunteer in the Ferndale Church Winter Night Shelter. We commence Friday November 27th 2015 and will be doing every Friday/Saturday up to 18th March 2016. In order to me to produce a rota to cover these times, assign roles and establish communication channels, please provide the following information:


Telephone (home and mobile):


Email and website:

Church (if applicable):

Referee (name and contact details): (not needed if already provided)

Please indicate the slots when you are available. Depending on who else is on duty and what you can offer, you will only be called on for some of the slot indicated (and for later in the season you may not yet have that info). We envisage most volunteers doing no more than two shifts maximum and not more than every other week. We also recognise that some may not do an entire shift (please indicate but also aim to arrive promptly)
