We were started by group of brilliant volunteers in 1994 and volunteering has been an integral part of everything we do since then.

We are incredibly proud to have received The Queen’s Award For Voluntary Services, the MBE for Voluntary Organisations in 2019, as an acknowledgement of the tireless work of our volunteers.

Current Roles

One-to-One English Volunteers

We’re looking for volunteers to help refugees to practice and learn English on a one-to-one basis. The relaxed and informal sessions will be over Zoom & Skype and give the refugees much needed social interaction and a chance to practice speaking, listening and writing in English.

The sessions run in ten weeks ‘terms’, following a plan that is agreed between the refugee and the volunteer. Our project co-ordinator will provide an induction to explain how it works, as well as an introduction session during the first week.

If you’re interested in this role, please email Maggie at info@reading.cityofsanctuary.org
