Volunteer

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.
