Volunteer with IKWRO

Volunteers make an extremely valuable contribution towards the work that we do at IKWRO and we appreciate every person that shares their time and skills with us.

We support each of our volunteers with training and supervision, so that they can learn new skills, gain experience and have a real, positive impact.

We are always keen to hear from you if you are interested in volunteering with us and we will also share specific volunteering opportunities here. We are especially looking for Arabic-speaking volunteers at the moment to assist advisors. 

If you would like to volunteer at IKWRO, please download and complete this form and email it to info@ikwro.org.uk.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
