We welcome volunteers from all sections of the community, particularly those with lived experience of the immigration or asylum system.

We provide induction and ongoing training as well as regular group and one-to-one supervision. Many of those who volunteer for us gain valuable knowledge and skills for future learning or employment.

If you have any questions or would like more information,
please email our Volunteer Co-ordinator, veronica@slr-a.org.uk.

Volunteering with SLRA has been a privilege. I have found my work stimulating, thought-provoking and most of all, rewarding.
