DEPAUL BELIEVES THAT HOMELESSNESS HAS NO PLACE. Depaul is a charity who work with people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. 

Depaul has two European Voluntary Service hosting projects in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK) for 4 motivated volunteers in total.  
Depaul NI Stella Maris Project
Activity Starts: from 1st July 2018
Duration: 11 months
Project Info:  A residential homeless Service for adults with alcohol addiction. Service users can consume alcohol on the premises under the ethos of Harm Reduction (working with the individual to reduce alcohol related harm).  Service users may have mental and physical health problems as a result of their drinking. 
Volunteers: 2 patient and motivated volunteers required for organizing and facilitating social involvement and activities in the project.  Activities act as a diversion from drinking alcohol.
Activities may include: games, music, photography; arts & crafts, gardening, health promotion, organizing trips out etc.  Our vulnerable service users do have addiction and mental health problems so volunteers may face challenges such as apathy and working with people with challenging behavior, chaotic lifestyles and low self esteem.  

Depaul NI Homeless Families Project
Activity Starts: from 1st July 2018
Duration: 11 months
Project Info: Two residential Services for homeless families. Service users may have suffered from family breakup, domestic violence or displacement. Parents may be very young themselves and have little life experience.
Volunteers: 2 patient and motivated volunteers required for organizing and facilitating social involvement and activities for parents and their children (ages can range from babies to young teenagers).  Service users live in their own self contained apartments within the building so volunteers are required to provide activities to encourage service users to socialize and gain new skills and experiences. 
Activities may include: arts & crafts; organizing trips out; children’s activities; “life skills” such as basic cookery; health promotion such as good mental health or nutrition etc.  Many of the children in the project may be below 3 years of age.  Parents are responsible for their own children (there are no “babysitting” facilities) and this can make it difficult for them to engage in activities.
