ORGANIZATION: connection support

  • 6 people are interested

We are looking for volunteers who can spare a few hours each week to support people to maintain their tenancy and keep a roof over their head.

We are in need of volunteers to work alongside Connection Support’s Housing Support Service which helps people manage their finances so they can remain independent.

The main responsibility is to provide ongoing support to clients whose service with us has come to an end to ensure they stay on track with maintaining their tenancy.

Volunteers will provide a "light touch" check in role, visiting clients at home to monitor their welfare and general wellbeing, checking they are managing to stay up to date with paying rent and other payments. Volunteers might help in other ways, such as opening post and checking bills.

Are you:
- Good at communicating and listening?
- Able to work on your own initiative?
- Enthusiastic and motivating?
- Reliable and able to make regular appointments?

If you answer yes to these questions, we would love to hear from you!

Please note the role will take place around Oxford City and Witney/West Oxford - please ensure you will be able to get there.

About connection support


Suite 16 challenge house, sherwood drive, milton keynes, buckinghamshire MK3 6DP, GB

Mission Statement

Connection Support has a range of services providing support to people at risk of homelessness or on the edge of needing social care. We work with people made vulnerable through debt, family circumstances, mental health issues, substance misuse, care leavers, learning disability, age, and physical disabilities. We focus on individuals, to understand their unique set of circumstances, challenges and abilities. They tell us what they want to achieve, their goals and aspirations and we will work with them, providing practical and emotional support to help them to build the skills and confidence to deal with the ups and downs of life.


Volunteers play a key role in the provision of vital services to our clients.
Knowing you have helped someone is an amazing feeling, but there is so much more to gain. New friends, new skills and experience, and confidence, to name but a few!
Volunteers are an integral part of Connection Support so you can be sure your time will be valued.
Not everyone has someone to turn to in a crisis, a friend they can chat to or someone to lend a practical hand or teach them how to navigate online. Connection Support volunteers help fill those gaps and, in doing so, often make a lasting difference to another person’s life.
We have many different services to help a wide range of clients and just a few of our statistics for the last 3 years - 99% of clients were supported in avoiding eviction, 99% of referrals were assessed within 3 years, 21 million has been saved in public funds by keeping these clients off the streets.
