Volunteer with us

We are always looking for people to volunteer their time, helping us with events and during busy periods. To be added to our database of volunteers that we can call on when we need, please email Anna on [email protected]



Volunteer opportunities with local organisations

Below are current volunteering opportunities with local organisations. Even if an organisation is not specifically recruiting at the current time, some welcome applications on a rolling basis, so it always worth checking their website.

Bristol Hospitality Network

They currently have needs for welcome centre volunteers on Mondays including advocacy team members, ESOL Teachers, a kitchen manager, artists for our new art table, and general helpers. They also need trustees, people for our new team to develop social enterprise, networkers and fundraisers (with links in places of worship, other charities and businesses) and people who are good at D.I.Y to help our mens’ house maintenance.

They need Host Families/Households to offer a place to stay for sanctuary seekers experiencing destitution.

They also need men to live as live-in hosts in a 12 bedroom, all male house.

If you feel you would be able to offer any of the above, please contact BHN on [email protected]


Celebrating Sanctuary

On the 9th of July, as part of Bristol Refugee Festival, there will be a free festival in Queen’s Square celebrating sanctuary. There will be music, art and information, along with games and henna painting. They are looking for volunteers to help the day run smoothly, 3.15 hours of stewarding and can offer a meal ticket in exchange for your time.
