Opportunities to volunteer

We have a welcoming and diverse volunteer community and would love for you to join it. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the contact form below or email us. We'll get back in touch very soon.

We need help with:

  • CASEWORK (Tuesdays, 1015am - 430pm, 6 month commitment)

    We’re looking for people who are committed to helping migrants with NRPF with their legal application. No prior experience required, only an ability to empathise and be organised and a commitment to changing things on both an individual and structural level. We’re especially open to applications from people who’ve previously had NRPF themselves.

  • COOKING LUNCH (Tuesdays, 10am - 1pm, can be on a one-off or regular basis)
    We need someone to help us to cook a hearty lunch for all our hardworking applicants and volunteers. It's a great opportunity to be part of our community, meet people and be creative. We get all sorts of food donated to us, so we need someone with some imagination and passion for food, as well as people who are willing to get stuck in and help us chop veg. Please contact us if you think this is you: info@unity-project.org.uk.

  • CHILDCARE (Tuesdays, 11am - 3pm, regular commitment but not necessarily weekly)
    Come and have fun caring for the children of our applicants and volunteers. Parents are usually very stressed by their situation and children are often living in very difficult situations. Please help us make Tuesday sessions the highlight of their week while we work with their parents to improve their living situations in the long-term.

  • CREATE OUR NEW LOGO
    Are you willing and able to design us a new logo? We'd really appreciate it and we'd credit your work.

  • FOOD COLLECTION FROM UPPER STREET / SETTING UP / PACKING DOWN (Monday evenings/ Tuesdays, ad-hoc)
    Opportunities for people who live locally and have an hour or so to spare occasionally - these tasks are as essential as they are unglamorous!

  • WELFARE CASEWORKER (Tuesdays, 1015am - 430pm, 6 month commitment)
    We are looking for someone with experience of casework in an advice organisation or lived experience of NRPF to make sure that the applicants we see are offered some additional welfare support. We want everyone we see to feel that their additional short-term needs are recognised and remedied where possible, alongside our legal and longer-term assistance. This mainly involves advocacy around HC1 forms, Child Benefit applications, NHS debts, access to free school meals, referrals for s.17 support, and distributing baby supplies and sanitary essentials. Varied and responsible role for anyone interested in support work in the sector.
