Paiwand is a Community Organisation working with vulnerable refugees, migrants and asylum-seeking individuals to help them integrate into society. We uplift and empower them by providing support and guidance, thus enhancing their life chances and choices.
We uphold the following values: holistic and integrated support, person-centered, equal rights for all, empowering and building on the individual’s strength, passion and commitment. We do this through various projects and services.
We are recruiting a volunteer for Community Advocate Volunteer to support Community Advocacy Project. The project works with refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants across London to provide advocacy support on issues of Housing, Welfare Benefits, Legal Matters, Health etc. In addition to advocacy, the project aims to raise awareness among the refugee community about their rights and entitlements in the UK. The overall objective of the project is to empower vulnerable members of the community and reduce destitution.
