Inspiring Charity: Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Wed 1st Nov, 2017

We recently approached GARAS to see if we could help them recruit volunteers. The result was most surprising - they didn't need our help because they always had more offers from potential volunteers than they could use!

That's very unusual - most charities can't get enough volunteers.

We find it rather inspiring that in a somewhat Xenophobic climate, so many people want to help Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

There are plenty of volunteers out there - the trick is to connect them with issues they care about!

We help broker over 500 volunteer/charity relationships a year - do contact us if we can help you or your charity.
