We are looking for volunteers to support either, the administration and evaluation, or outreach tasks of our Al-Aman team which works with Arabic speaking communities across London. You do not need to speak Arabic as this is a support role, although doing so would be a bonus and may enable a progression to a wider range of volunteering opportunities within the team.
