Volunteering with ASSIST - Information session

Tue 23 Oct 2018 5.30 to 6.30pm, Room 43, Victoria Hall, Chapel Walk entrance S1 2JB

A short presentation about ASSIST’s work and a chance to find out about the volunteer roles that are currently available, and how to apply for them. All welcome.

ASSIST Sheffield supports some of the most vulnerable people who have been unsuccessful in their applications for asylum and as a result have been made destitute. Many of them have escaped the unimaginable horrors of war, violence and persecution. Without refugee status, asylum seekers are not allowed to work. Once their initial application for asylum has been turned down many are left homeless and destitute with no right to housing, benefits or other vital support, so ASSIST is an invaluable lifeline.
