If you would like to volunteer with us, please read the Code-of-Conduct and our Safeguarding Policy (both important documents) and then complete our Volunteer Agreement and Application. One of our team will then ask you to a Skype interview and discuss dates with you.
Volunteer in Greece
You can see the camps where we have worked here. We currently work in Katsikas only (near Ioannina).
No special skills are required but we are looking for people to volunteer for between 2 and 4 weeks who can fund their own travel and accommodation (assume that you will need between €20-€35 a day depending on the accommodation options). And we have even more love for volunteers who can raise money for us. You will need to set up a fundraising page before you come but we do not ask for any minimum amount. Any funds you can raise are helpful.
What’s it like to be a volunteer with Refugee Support?
This is an opportunity to work for one of Greece’s leading volunteer organisations and help in different camps.
You can find out more about volunteering by reading our volunteer stories and watching this video from December 2017 explaining what volunteering is like.
Or there is this one created by a couple of volunteers from summer 2017:
Please be aware that all visitors to the camps can be refused entry unless they register in advance with us or one of the other NGOs.
Volunteer in Bangladesh
At the beginning of December, we started to support a camp in Bangladesh, near Cox’s Bazar.
We quickly made a difference but like all organisations there, we are being defeated by bureaucratic hoops. The restrictions are making it impossible to operate there so we are not able to consider any volunteers until the situation changes.
Refugee Support Europe is a registered charity (number 1174070).
