Caritas Luxembourg is currently looking for a wide range of volunteers:

Volunteering at the Centre Ulysse:

The Caritas Accueil et Solidarité Ulysse centre is an emergency shelter open all year round. It accommodates homeless people as long as there are vacant beds. A multidisciplinary team offers personalised psycho-socio-educational support to all those accommodated. Due to redevelopment work, the Centre Ulysse has been moved to temporary premises in Luxembourg-Findel.

We are looking for people who can provide these residents with the essential human touch that characterises voluntary work. Volunteers need to have a sense of human contact and warmth. We are thinking of activities such as

  • Board games
  • Trips into town
  • Trips to the shopping centre
  • Going to the hairdresser
  • Walks in the forest
  • Reading newspapers
  • Conversation
  • For women: wellness activities (manicure, pedicure)
  • Internet work (reading, video, CV writing)

This voluntary work will help to combat social exclusion. The language required is Luxembourgish and/or French. Times to be agreed, daily mornings or afternoons.
