Volunteer Driver (Emergency Response Team)

The food shortage brought about by the coronavirus outbreak is dire for some refugee friends, and the suspension of most day centres supporting destitute migrants has left many with no source of support. JRS UK are looking for volunteer deliverers who can collect food parcels and hygiene packs from the JRS UK office in Wapping and deliver them to vulnerable refugees in London. It is essential that those applying for this role have a full clean driving licence and access to a car (or bicycle with a trailer), and are willing to drive in London.

Phone Support Volunteer (Emotional Support & Befriending)

JRS UK are looking for volunteers who can assist with making regular phone calls to refugees to provide emotional support and friendship during this time. Many of our refugee friends feel even more isolated and lonely as a result of the pandemic and their needs often become more urgent, sometimes falling in and out of crisis. In line with the JRS mission of accompaniment, this role offers the chance for encounter, mutual relationship, and companionship by lending a listening ear to those of our refugee friends who need somebody to talk to.
