Paiwand is operating as a main organisation to help many refugees in London. We're looking for a rep to act as the face of Paiwand and attend meetings and conferences that staff are not able to attend because they are involved in direct work with the refugees. Successful volunteer reps will also be able to benefit from this role by developing their listening skills, communication skills and enhance their awareness of different issues that refugees experience on a daily basis.  

Time commitment

We ideally would ask the volunteer to commit to 2 days a week for a minimum of 6-months. The working hours are flexible and can be planned with their line manager.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
This role is remote with a few visits to the Edgeware office, where there are COVID-19 measures in place.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
