• Join the Team

    Shiloh Rotherham is a Christian charity that offers warmth, practical support and pathways to a meaningful, self-reliant life for adults in need, regardless of their beliefs.

    We do this by offering:

    • Rest and Refreshment – hot breakfast, lunch, hot drinks and a safe day time shelter to rest in and relax.
    • Dignity – facilities for washing, showering and laundry. There is also a supply of donated, clean clothes.
    • Encouragement & Practical Assistance – helping people to resolve life’s challenges by helping them to connect with the right medical, housing and job search services. Training to support people with education, lifestyle changes and confidence building. A local health surgery also provides care too.

    We are always looking for more volunteers to help us continue and develop our work with some of the most vulnerable in our community.

    Shiloh is an inspiring place where many exciting new things are happening and lives are being changed. Successful applicants will join an enthusiastic team of people who are here because they want and are able to make a difference to people’s lives and wellbeing. Our volunteer team is made up of people from different beliefs, so all are welcome to apply. However many volunteers are Christian,  like Brenda, who says….

    aa About nine years ago, I felt that God was calling me to work with and for the people I was praying for – the homeless and those who were struggling with addiction.  I prayed about this and Shiloh kept coming to my attention in various ways.  So, here I am, nine years later and doing what I believe God wants me to do.  Sometimes our guests just need someone to talk to and many are pleased to hear that God loves them as much as he loves me.  Here’s to the next nine years – age and health permitting! aa
