JRS UK volunteers are integral to our work. Without our dedicated volunteers, JRS could not do as much for people seeking asylum as it does.
The Coronavirus outbreak is of particular concern for the refugees we support at JRS UK, and many of our volunteers who are elderly. For everyone’s safety, and in light of the latest government advice, we have suspended our face-to-face services. This includes our weekly drop-in Day Centre, refugee activities and detention visits, which are supported by a number of volunteers, without whom the services we provide would not be able to exist.
This is no different during COVID-19. As we work to find new ways of supporting refugees – and adapt our services to include more phone support, and deliveries of essential items such as food and toiletries – we will continue to need volunteer help. In fact, your support is more important than ever.
At the moment, we are looking for*:
If you are interested in volunteering with JRS UK in either of the above roles, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application form.
If you have a skill or talent that you wish to contribute to the work of JRS UK, please do get in touch and we’ll see what we can do. We are always open to developing skills and talents of our refugee friends and our volunteers.
*Please note we are only able to take on volunteers who are older than 18.
