At Home – Accompaniment Volunteer

One of the greatest challenges faced by the refugees supported by JRS UK is the lack of accommodation. Destitute refugees are often forced to seek respite on night buses, rely on friends who might host them for a night or two, or else find themselves street homeless.

We are looking for a volunteer to support the At Home scheme – to accompany our refugee friends as they move between hosting placements, meet with prospective hosts to assess their suitability, and assist our Accommodation Officer. This will involve arranging travel between placements for guests and if necessary, accompanying them on their journeys.

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.
