Refugee Support - Casework Volunteer (Newcastle - Ref Q4-12)
British Red Cross volunteers help thousands of refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants every year enabling people to draw upon their own strengths to withstand crisis and rebuild their lives.
Our casework volunteers work one-to-one with refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants at a time which many will find particularly difficult and distressing. We help to ensure people have choices and opportunities made available to them to find a way forward and start their lives in a new country.
You’ll need access to a phone and computer. If you don’t have these, we might be able to lend them to you.
We’d like you to be able to volunteer:
- 6 to 12 hours a week
- Flexible Monday to Friday
- For 12 months
We would be particularly interested to hear from you if you have experience of being a refugee or asylum seeker.
