Ways to share time and skills
“I realise how fortunate I’ve been to have had the opportunity of being part of the big JRS family... it was a wonderful opportunity to meet people from all walks of life whilst working with a tremendous team of people, who became my colleagues, my friends and eventually like my second family.” Gaelle Angoh, volunteer visitor to detainees
“JRS-UK volunteers are integral to our work. Without the volunteers, JRS-UK could not do as much as it does; and without the volunteers, hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers would be left unsupported and uncared for each year” Louise Zanré, Director
You can volunteer in different ways with JRS-UK:
Letter writing and visits
Correspond with or visit a refugee in a removal centre - contact us for more information about this in London on 020 7488 7318/9 or contact your local Justice and Peace group for more information in your local area.
Help at the Day Centre – we need people who can spend time and talk with visitors, assist with grant-making and undertake individual follow-up care.
Offer time and professional skills to the office team – we can use support with administration tasks, running projects, IT, communications and hospitality.
Do get in touch explaining a little about yourself and what time and skills you wish to offer so we can fix a time to discuss the opportunity in more detail with you.
Please look at the international website for international opportunities.
