Volunteer

We have limited volunteering opportunities at present. However, there are lots of other ways in which you can get involved and show your support for refugees in Suffolk:

  • Join our mailing list so you can keep up-to-date with regular Suffolk Refugee Support news, events and appeals
  • Hold a fundraising event, with our support
  • Offer a work placement for our clients or help us get in touch with business contacts who might be able to help
  • Become a member of Suffolk Refugee Support


One-to-one support

We are looking for a volunteer to provide additional support to a client who is undertaking a social work degree. The role might involve helping the client understand concepts and theories relating to the course, writing academically, learning joined up writing and practicing reading. We are looking for someone who is available during the day to provide this one-to-one support.

If you are interested in this role or would like to join our volunteer waiting list, please contact our volunteer recruitment officer Ellie on volunteer@suffolkrefugee.org.uk. You can also keep up-to-date with the latest volunteer vacancies by following our Facebook page.

Please note, we do ask for a minimum time commitment of several months for most of our volunteer roles. Also, due to the vulnerable nature of our client group, we are obliged to carry out checks (such as DBS) on new volunteer applications and this can delay the process of getting started. We hope you understand and will bear with us if this is the case – we really do appreciate the generosity of time, energy and skills offered by all those interested in helping refugees in Suffolk!
