Giving Street people U-turn vouchers instead of cash, helps us establish contact individuals and is the start of our rehabilitation journey.​



Financial support enables us to work with more individuals. Thank you for helping us help others.​



You can help and support the homeless through U-Turn in at least 5 ways. This will make a difference and change lives.​

Volunteering Opportunities

We are looking for a qualified counsellor or clinical psychologist who wants to volunteer some time  providing supervision services to the U-Turn staff.

Skills needed: Formal accredited training as a clinical psychologist or counsellor

Working with: U-Turn staff only

Frequency: Ad hoc as counselling needs arise

Where: Either your office or the U-Turn office at 155 2nd Ave, Kenilworth

At what time: Whenever it suits you, preferably one hour a week

Commitment minimum: To councel 1 staff work through a specific issue or be available generally for 3 months

Reason for minimum commitment: We would think that debriefing a specific incident might require multiple sessions and, if possible to avoid it, we would not want to have to change counsellors mid way through a counselling journey. We would therefore ask the counsellor to commit to seeing a particular issue through, or, if staff need advice on general issues, be available for a minimum of 3 months

Duration: No specific end date

Assist U-turn to create multimedia presentations for Website, Facebook and public speaking events. There is a great need for short video clips to promote upcoming events or to introduce the work of U-turn more generally, or to capture feedback from volunteers.  They could be used fairly frequently at the different public speaking engagements that we undertake.

Skills needed: Video editing skills, video capturing skills

Working with: U-turn staff & in a limited way also with Street people when gathering footage

Frequency: One-off

Where: Either your office or the U-Turn office at 155 2nd Ave, Kenilworth

At what time: Flexible

Commitment minimum: 1 video

Reason for minimum commitment: More would be wonderful but we won’t say no to even 1 🙂

Duration: We can normally give people 4-6 weeks lead time on a video clip that we would need
