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

ESOL-trained volunteer

We are looking for an ESOL-trained volunteer (female only) to teach English to a group of women. An ability to speak Arabic, Dari or Farsi would be advantageous but is not essential.

Youth Sports Activities volunteer

We are looking for a sporty volunteer to assist with our Youth Sports Activities group, which takes place every Tuesday from 6-8pm. Knowledge and training in football or other sports would be helpful but not compulsory.

If you would like to apply for either of these vacancies or join our volunteer waiting list, please contact our volunteer recruitment officer Jemima on volunteer@suffolkrefugee.org.uk. You can also keep up-to-date with the latest volunteer vacancies by following our Facebook page.

Suffolk Refugee Support is committed to equal opportunities and to supporting diversity both in the provision of services and as an employer. You can read our full Equality & Diversity Statement here.
Please note, we 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!
