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, 10.15am - 4.30pm, 6 month commitment)
Our next training day will be in late summer (September 2019).
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.
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.
ADMIN ASSISTANT (flexible hours)
Perfect for anybody looking to gain office experience. This will include calling applicants; sorting, anonymising and archiving documents; sourcing donations and updating our resources and website. We will provide training, including in IT (from Excel to platforms such as Squarespace and GSuite).
WELFARE CASEWORKER (Tuesdays, 10.15am - 4.30pm, 6 month commitment)
We are looking for someone with experience of casework in an advice organisation or lived experience of NRPF to guide applicants through the additional welfare support available to them, including signposting and referring to our partners. Varied and responsible role for anyone interested in support work in the sector.
We’re looking for a treasurer to join our board of trustees. We’re looking for someone with knowledge and experience of financial management, particularly in voluntary and community organisations, and a commitment to migrants’ rights.
