Nikki oversees all the work of C4WS Homeless Project, providing the direction and vision of C4WS alongside its Trustees. She leads the Welfare Team which works with guests coming into the shelters to help them secure appropriate accommodation and support them with any other needs they might have such as physical health, mental health, literacy, budgeting, employment and legal issues.
Nikki also heads up the fundraising for C4WS Homeless Project.
Sam works with the Project Manager to help guests from our shelters secure housing and support them with their other welfare needs and also runs the Mentoring and Befriending Scheme and also pioneered the idea for our own hosting project, Home from Home, which after a successful pilot, will now be available to guests from the shelter who need a couple of additional weeks of respite after the shelter, but before they are able to move into more permanent accommodation.
Sam also manages the corporate partnerships for C4WS Homeless Project.
Jenna manages the logistics of our winter night shelter which involves coordinating our thirteen venues and training and supporting the Church Coordinators and our 700 volunteers. She liaises with our referral agencies and is the main point of contact for our shelters.
Jenna organises the move-ons for our guests into their new accommodation helping them to settle in and providing starter packs of food and essential household items.
In addition, Jenna also manages the Friday Club - a weekly drop-in service for the homeless, vulnerable and isolated, providing welfare support to those in need.
Laszlo runs the Jobs Club which helps guests become job-ready and obtain training, employment and volunteering positions. He also assists the Shelter Coordinator at Friday Club.
In addition, Laszlo provides support during the shelter season to the team as a whole, and is an invaluable part of the service we are able to provide to our guests.
Kevin assists Laszlo with our Jobs Club and Jenna at our Friday Club. He also runs Sunday Club, a new drop in for shelter guests to use throughout the season. This is a safe space for them to use on a day of the week when other local services are usually closed.
Kevin also provides support to the whole team during the shelter season, being the main staff presence at morning and evening shifts, and we are very grateful to have him as part of our team for the forthcoming season.
