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.
Food collection volunteer
We’re looking for volunteers with cars to help collect food donations from a few local organisations/businesses, and deliver to our centre at St Mary’s Church (Stoke Newington) on Wednesday morning before the session. You will need to be available on Tuesday evening to collect, and early Wednesday morning to deliver a couple of times a month. Please email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire further about the role.
‘ 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.’HMC volunteer
