Getting Involved

There are many ways of getting involved with us at Signposts and any of the following might be the right thing for you:

Volunteering

We are always looking for volunteers to give a couple of  hours each week to serve on our reception desk or in our cafe kitchen. We so much value the involvement of our volunteers. Many find it’s a great way to meet new people, make new friends and give something back to the community.  Some even find it’s a good stepping stone towards employment. The volunteering experience can be recorded on your cv and we can give references as well.

Fundraising

Are you are good at networking, have a flair for running events or can get sponsors for sporting and other challenges? Could you take collection boxes into shops and workplaces?If so then we would love you to raise funds to keep our valuable work going. Just get in touch and we will be happy to discuss further any ideas you may have.

Making Donations

If you would like to make a donation or set up a regular giving amount to help local people to overcome some of the most serious difficulties in life then please give directly using our Gift Aid forms which can downloaded here Gift Aid form v2 – Signposts. This will ensure your donation is used to maximum effect.

This method of giving offers the opportunity to add Gift Aid if you are a UK Tax Payer. This means the government give us back the tax you have paid on the amount you are giving so increasing the value of your donation to us without any extra cost to you.

If you prefer you can give via our  LOCAL GIVING link.

A big THANK YOU to those of you who are already donating in either of these ways. If you are doing this already or are considering doing so then get in touch with us and we’ll arrange a visit to our centre so you can meet us and see more of the work that we do.

If you use Ebay linked with Paypal you can make donations to us when you purchase goods. For more information click here.

Board membership

We already have a good range of skills amongst our board members but would welcome anyone with a relevant background and an interest in this kind of strategic work to get in touch. Board members would need to be fully aware of our Christian ethos and able to fully embrace the spiritual aspects of the work we carry out.

Advising

We welcome advice from anyone who thinks they have some good ideas to share with us at any level within the organisation.

Mentoring

If you are able to develop a longer term relationship with any of our employees, volunteers or clients because you have relevant experience which may be helpful then we would be open to a discussion.

Spiritual and Prayer Support

We already have strong connections with Rising Brook Baptist Church and value highly the support that they give to us in many different ways. If you are a local Christian and wish to support us in prayer or minister to us in another way then we would be pleased to hear from you and keep you up to date with prayer requests.
