The Ukraine War has created added pressure for our team and we are looking for people who can volunteer with Host Assessments, Casework Assistance, and Matching Guests with Hosts. Volunteer in person or remotely and through our non-office based Humans Network set up to increase our capacity to help refugees and asylum seekers at a time of crisis. The link to apply is below. 

Our Humans Network 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 this Network, 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.

To volunteer with Positive Action in Housing, please sign up.
