Volunteering

Our team also includes over 50 volunteers. Our volunteers are local people, many of whom have lived experience of migration.

Volunteers welcome people, cook lunches, give advice, accompany people to appointments, help in our office, help people learn new skills, teach English, organise parties and events, support our Youth Club and much more.
