The Terminus Initiative
The Terminus Initiative is an amazing charity originally founded by local churches in Lowedges (a very poor neighbourhood on the Southern edge of Sheffield).
Our mission is to meet the emotional, physical, and developmental needs of the community here. We run lots of different community support through our health living centre, befriending schemes and youth outreach but our ‘front door’ is Terminus Cafe, which is a community hub and charity shop selling healthy food and homemade cake at affordable prices.
We have a lot of service user volunteers who need helping to learn skills and are looking for more able volunteers to support them. We are looking for kind and competent people to support our volunteers in running our community cafe and shop.
Supervisors and assistant supervisors will learn about food safety, ensure hygiene standards, operate the till, make basic meals (sandwiches and baked potatoes), and support the service user volunteers to help with these tasks plus help them find pride in doing their own tasks well.
We are looking for people who are supportive, friendly and reliable. Ideally you will have some background in volunteer support or food hygiene but this is not essential. Due to insurance our volunteers need to be over 18. We have a disabled access toilet and double doors. We provide reasonable travel expenses and meals for those working double shifts. We provide food hygiene level 2 training, an induction, and an invitation to our Christmas party, trips to the seaside and other treats we provide for our service users.
