UL GIVE EXEC 2020-2021
The Haven Hub Volunteers
Requirements:Administration, Marketing, Social Media, Tech Support, Fundraisers and More
Volunteer Needed for Admin, Media, Marketing, Tech support, Fundraising enthusiasts. All Welcome.
The Haven Hub is an out of hours support centre for people that are struggling to cope or are at risk of suicide. We opened our doors in November 2019 and have since had over 200 interventions. We were initially based in the Red Brick Social Services building on Henry Street in Limerick but due to Covid-19 the building has been unavailable since March 2020.
During the pandemic we offered telephone support to people who were struggling 7 nights a week but following a plea on social media secured the use of Jimmy Collins Make Up Academy on Steamboat Quay in Limerick City. We have been operating from here since August but use of this premises is only temporary. We are open Friday and Saturday nights from 8pm until 2am. We are in touch with two Patrol Groups in Limerick City and encourage them to bring people they meet by the river to the Haven Hub where we can offer support to them away from the elements, offer them their dignity and most importantly follow up with them.
While we are currently only open 2 nights per week (pre lock down) we would hope that a more permanent home would mean we could operate the Haven Hub 7 nights a week.
The Have Hub may sometimes not be able to take on volunteers for peer support or the opportunity may not suit volunteers who want to help.
