Mentors - any day, any time:
Can't commit to any of the above but would still like to assist and love spending time / helping people? Become a mentor; this could mean having a coffee, lunch, walk with a guest to help support them get back on their feet, feel heard, help with setting goals, making and getting to appointments are just some of the things this could include
Love animals? Have the space at home to foster an animal for a short period of time? This may be the support you can offer someone in crisis by taking in a pet for someone in crisis whilst they get back on their feet - may only be of a night time basis (all situations assessed individually)
