Volunteer Opportunities

Apex Charitable Trust are opening a community coffee shop in September/October 2019, in St Helens through which they will be offering free accredited training and volunteer opportunities. Anyone interested in applying must live in the Liverpool City region (excluding Wirral), be over the age of 18 and have a conviction (current or historic). 

This is a fantastic opportunity for people to engage in accredited training while enhancing their work experience through their volunteering role, helping to increase their skills, knowledge and employability; and is suitable for anyone thinking of going into hospitality or wanting a career change. In addition it could be a way of securing paid employment for those who have faced challenges when seeking paid employment due to their conviction. Everyone who engages with this opportunity will complete a 5 step programme which includes support from the advice and guidance officer and a peer mentor, employment preparation including supported job searches and post-employment support for 4 months. In addition they are currently in talks with some bigger, well established hospitality establishments to offer work placements this will enhance the individuals experience and give people a taste of what it’s like to work in a busy kitchen with well-known and experienced chefs. 

If you are interested in applying for this opportunity or would like to know more please contact Leanne Corkery at Apex:
