Volunteering Group


The information below outlines the type of work that volunteers do within the organisation and the commitment we would like to make if you volunteer with us.

Everyone has different reasons for offering their time. We engage volunteers in work that is of interest and / or benefit to them at the same time as being of benefit to us.

We value our volunteers and recognise that they are just as important as our paid employees.

This means you will have full access to the non-financial benefits of working for Digartref.


This includes on-going support and regular supervision, opportunities for personal development and access to training.

You can be involved at any level of the charity's work,  from those requiring specialist skills to others where energy and enthusiasm are the only qualifications.

We welcome volunteer applications from people of all cultures, abilities, walks of life and those able to offer peer support from lived experiences, who are over the age of eighteen. You just need a positive and non-judgemental attitude towards homeless people.


For the Lighthouse and Learn4Life programme we ask for a regular commitment of 3 hours and that volunteers work in line with our policies and in support of our aims and ethos. There are no minimum hours requested for the Nightstop Project.

A DBS check will be required, the charity will fund this cost.


Are you aged 18 plus and interested in volunteering with Digartref’s team at the Lighthouse Day Centre?


Volunteering for a few hours each week can make a difference to the lives of those experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. Training and support is provided to help volunteers in their roles.


Volunteering activities are varied and can include:


  • Preparing food for our clients

  • Keep the Lighthouse Day Centre clean, ensuring high standards of food storage and food preparation, that the building is clean and a comfortable place for our clients to visit

  • Going to get the shopping, ensuring a good supply of food and other necessary items

  • Undertaking gardening, at the Lighthouse Day Centre and in Digartref’s community garden, growing fresh and nutritious food for the clients.

  • Support in arranging and supporting access to well- being activities or other events for our clients

  • Any other skills., knowledge and experience you have to offer to bring to the volunteering role and help us to provide a warm welcome in a safe place for people in crisis.


Volunteering is also a great way to increase your own work-related experience and gain the necessary skills if you are looking for a job in the housing/homelessness sector. Digartref has a number of examples of staff within the organisation who started out volunteering. It can lead to a wide range of opportunities as training is also provided for those who want to pursue or take part in these.

To ensure responsible and effective governance, we are currently seeking to recruit highly motivated and committed individuals to join our Board of Management on a voluntary basis to make a valuable contribution to the work the charity undertakes.

We are particularly keen to hear from individuals who have experience, knowledge or an interest in Homelessness, Substance Misuse, Property Development and Maintenance, Homelessness and Housing Legislation/Law, Third Sector Strategic Management, Welfare Benefits, Community Development, Service User Involvement and Customer Services.

Board meetings are held every 3 months on Anglesey. Although Board members are not required to attend every Board meeting, members do need to commit to attending 3 meetings a year to ensure continuity and enable the work of the charity to be carried out effectively.
