Give your time

We couldn’t work without our volunteers. Whether welcoming people to our offices, leading language classes, or providing peer to peer support, our volunteers make the Welsh Refugee Council.

Our volunteers come from around the globe and all backgrounds and speak over 15 different languages. They include former teachers, entrepreneurs and journalists. We particularly welcome volunteers from asylum and refugee backgrounds.

Many volunteers say that coming to the Welsh Refugee Council is like having a second family.

We have roles including:

  • Communications assistants
  • Advice and support assistants
  • Office meet and greeters
  • English and Welsh language teachers (must have TESOL qualification or be working towards one)
  • Play Development Assistants (subject to Enhanced DBS checks)

IT skills, Practice & Language Skills

One of the key areas of our work is supporting volunteers from refugee backgrounds to enhance their IT skills, practice their language skills, and to learn other important transferable skills to help them find jobs in the UK – as well as helping us with much needed support.

We are always keen to hear from those who want to help. If you want to give your time, please contact us.
