This year, the churches behind BCARS are seeking to employ 3 Christian support workers to take it in turns to provide overnight cover each night of Sleepsafe (alongside a volunteer).  This will require someone who has experience of working with vulnerable adults, and preferably experience of drug & alcohol and/or mental health.  But we are also looking for someone who can relate well to both “guests” and volunteers, and who is “always ready to give a reason for the [Christian] hope that is within them”.
