Many asylum seekers experience a huge loss of confidence whilst their lives are on hold waiting for a decision.

As asylum seekers are not allowed to work, volunteering can be a great way to build up your work experience, improve your English & make friends. Charity shops & food banks are always looking for volunteers.





Retas provides information about volunteering, training and education opportunities.

Even though you cannot work, you might be able to get valuable work experience in your profession.

Doctors & health professionals can be part of the nhs programme or contact reache for advice.
