Change YOUR life... by supporting refugees.

We have lots of volunteer opportunities for people who would love to support, befriend or work with refugees. Some of our roles involve direct contact with refugee families and individuals, other roles are more behind-the-scenes, but just as important.

We love our volunteers and couldn't do what we do without them!

Volunteer opportunities include:

Welcome Box Befriender - visit and befriend newly arrived asylum seekers

Host Derby Volunteer - provide temporary accommodation for destitute asylum seekers (email delphis@upbeatcommunities.org for more information)

Community Activity Coordinator - work with us to organise activities for refugees

English Class Assistant - help our refugee students through English language learning

Cook - cook food for our community meals

Mentoring Volunteer - give one-to-one employment guidance to refugees as they rebuild their lives (email michael@upbeatcommunities.org for more information)

Admin / Research Volunteer - assist our office team with day-to-day support

All our volunteers receive training and regular on-going support from our staff.

We are reviewing our volunteer process so are not currently accepting new applications. This page will be updated once we are. You can stay up-to-date with us by joining our mailing list here.
