Asylum Seeker Support Volunteer opportunities

Service Centre Coordinator from Red Cross Auckland

We have a new volunteer programme that we're very excited to share with you! In this role, you will offer social support to people claiming asylum in the Auckland region through:
• Providing local orientation and information about the area/city/country
• Assisting clients to connect with other services and agencies
• Spending time together and getting to know more about each other and your cultures
• Advocating for people to access their entitlements if needed

You’ll need to be familiar with your local area, open to working cross culturally, be resourceful and good at taking initiative.

Comprehensive training will be provided, including key concepts relating to asylum, intercultural communication, and entitlements.
Training takes approximately 12 hours and is delivered over several evenings and/or weekends.

Police vetting, reference check, and pre-training interview are required for this role.

Time commitment:
Volunteers need to commit at least a few hours a week, but there are no set time shifts. The time you spend with a family/individual will vary week to week, so you’ll need to be flexible and work as part of a team.
To apply for this role, you will need to commit to volunteer for a period of at least three months.
