Volunteers’ Week is an opportunity for us to recognise the amazing contribution that volunteers make all year round. At Refugee Council, volunteers contribute to every part of our operation, working directly with refugees and people seeking asylum, as well as helping things run smoothly behind the scenes.
2020 so far has been challenging for everyone, and that includes our volunteers. Some have had to step back from the volunteer roles they treasure dearly, others have had to adapt to new circumstances, transitioning to online and phone roles. We have also brought on many new volunteers to help with our new and adapted services during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our volunteers are fantastic and bring such a wealth of kindness, experience and generosity to our work.
