Volunteering defines Asylum Welcome’s unique character and without our volunteers the charity could not function.

Last year our 150+ volunteers gave time worth almost £200,000. Our volunteers are our biggest asset! 

Volunteering with Asylum Welcome gives you the opportunity to get involved in a dynamic movement that cares about social justice. It is also a great way to do something meaningful and rewarding with your time, to gain skills and experience in the charity sector, to make new friends and to make a difference to the lives of others.

Before you apply to volunteer, come to one of our information sessions in the office to find out more about volunteering with us.
