The work of all our projects is supported by volunteers. They all receive induction, supervision and ongoing support with further training opportunities offered as needed for different roles.
Asylum seekers and refugees are allowed to volunteer and there are no restrictions.
They are highly motivated to learn skills and to gain experience that can help them get UK work experience that help them get work in this country. But volunteering is not just of benefit to the individual; it really helps our organisation.
They support our drop-in advice sessions and appointments; administration, interpreting for clients who don`t speak English, make telephone calls on behalf of clients.
Volunteers can also train to give advice: we can arrange training in advice skills, welfare rights, health, asylum support, and they are central to our golden age project to offer practical help, assistance and support to older people living in their own homes to remain independent
