Volunteers are absolutely integral to the running of our service, both at our face-to-face advice service and assisting with casework. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and walks of life, and especially encourage those with lived experience of migration to volunteer with us.

Volunteer with us

    ‘ Volunteering at Hackney Migrant Centre doesn’t just mean being an Advocate for migrants, it also means being part of a mutually supportive community. From my experience, the drop-ins have the power to turn someone’s experience of acute vulnerability into one of connection and solidarity.

    Volunteers can facilitate empowering moments in peoples’ larger journeys. And in turn, by having and sharing these experiences, the larger community benefits, both inside and outside Hackney Migrant Centre.’
