Shelter – Court Desk Volunteers

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through their advice, support and legal services.

Shelter volunteers are involved in their head office, services, shops, campaigns, events and their legal teams and they all contribute their valuable time, skills and experience.

In conjunction with Hertfordshire Law Clinic, Shelter is recruiting for Court Desk Volunteers for Watford and Hertford County Courts.  Court Desk Volunteers will be an essential part of the Shelter Legal team and will support their experienced solicitor. Volunteers will help with vulnerable clients and assist in obtaining the client's details and have the opportunity to observe negotiations and court hearings. This role will give you the opportunity to volunteer in a fast-paced, client-facing environment, as well as giving you hands-on experience in one of the UK's leading housing charities.
