You’ll need access to a phone and emails. We’d like you to be able to volunteer: - Mondays 10am to 3pm - Be based in Rochdale - For 12 months We would be particularly interested to hear from you if you have experience of being a refugee or asylum seeker. **Health and Safety Statement** We take an individual approach to ensuring your safety.
