Volunteer with Humans of Glasgow

Humans of Glasgow is a new contact-free and non office based volunteer network set up to increase our capacity to help refugees and asylum seekers at a time of crisis in the city. 

A Room for Refugees Caseworker helps Hamza understand and sign his hosting agreement.

It developed during Lockdown as a response to the humanitarian crisis created after the Mears Group moved 321 refugees and asylum seekers out of their homes into hotels across Glasgow during the Global pandemic and in the midst of the Lockdown. 

Through Humans of Glasgow, volunteers distribute one to one support, items and essential resources to asylum seekers leaving hotels in Glasgow and being moved into flats. Our casework team is on hand to take up individual cases highlighted to the Network.

We also regularly look for new volunteers on the following roles, and therefore future opportunities shall be expected:

  • Host assessors – to help Room for Refugees assess hostings
  • Casework assistants – to help caseworkers to help refugees apply for social rented housing 

We are happy to cover travel expenses, lunch expenses (up to £6), provide references and deliver certificates to all of you who join the team. Free t-shirts and neck scarves too.

If you are interested in current or future opportunities, feel free to apply online and we will be in touch.
 

For more information please email: home@positiveactionh.org or complete the application form online.
