Thank you very much for getting in touch with the volunteering team at Scottish Refugee Council, and for expressing interest in supporting refugees in Scotland by volunteering with us.
We are not recruiting at the moment, but please keep an eye on this page for future opportunities. We are unlikely to recruit new volunteers until the Coronavirus outbreak has improved.
If you would like to support our work in other ways, please have a look at our Get Involved page for ideas.
If you are interested in finding out about volunteering in charities (other than Scottish Refugee Council) in Glasgow, you can attend one of our monthly Volunteering Information Afternoons to find out about volunteering opportunities. This meeting is held on the last Thursday of every month (except December) and is open to asylum seekers and refugees only, at all stages of the asylum process. We will present to you the services of Volunteer Glasgow and explain how you can use their website to search for opportunities. Representatives from some Glasgow-based charities will also be attending to promote volunteering opportunities within their organisations.
Our Volunteering Information Afternoons in March and April have been cancelled. Please keep an eye on this page for updates about the next meeting.
Would you like to recruit refugee volunteers to support your organisation? Our Volunteer Development Coordinators would be happy to help. We can answer your questions about language issues, Disclosure Scotland applications, references and inclusive recruitment practices. You are also welcome to come along and advertise your volunteering opportunities face-to-face at our monthly Volunteering Information Afternoons.
Thank you for visiting our volunteering page, and exploring ways of supporting refugees in Scotland by volunteering with us. You can contact us, or read our Volunteering FAQs below.
