#COVID19 – As drop ins are currently suspended, volunteering for DASH is now mainly carried out remotely, by telephone. Roles include: ESOL helpers, Welfare Checkers, Interpreters, Distributors and Asylum Guides. Our future plans for volunteers at DASH will focus on our Asylum Guides project, in partnership with Refugee Action and funded by Comic Relief. Recruitment for Asylum Guides, which comes with a full free training, begins September 2020. For more info, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Asylum Guides – do you want to be part of a team that empowers asylum seekers to take control of their asylum journey? In order for asylum seekers to be granted protection, they need to ensure they have a fair chance to tell their story. To do this, they need to understand the process and their rights within it. Asylum Guides are trained volunteers, paired up with newly-arrived asylum seekers to offer guidance and information at key stages of the asylum process. Full training and support. In light of Covid-19, virtual meetings will likely be necessary via Zoom. DBS and references required.
The list of roles below isn’t up to date due to #COVID19 changes. Get in touch for the latest volunteer information by contacting email@example.com or use the link below. Please note: we ask all volunteers to undertake training in Safeguarding.
