Asylum Welcome seeks new Trustees – Could that be you?

Saturday, June 27, 2020

Asylum Welcome is amazing. Our small staff team and over 140 volunteers support asylum seekers, refugees, and vulnerable migrants, who seek refuge in Oxford. We provide everything from food and clothes to advice, visits, legal support, education, and assistance finding employment. Asylum Welcome is a financially stable organisation that transforms the lives of those it serves.

We have an increasing demand for Asylum Welcome’s services at a time when we also need to transform how we deliver services. We are seeking to appoint individuals to our Board. We are particularly keen to hear from people who have first-hand experience of refugee and asylum-seeking experience, or migration.

We are looking for people who will:

Be committed to the rights and welfare of refugees asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants and to Asylum Welcome’s vision, mission and values.

Have demonstrable expertise and/or experience of a relevant field, particularly in one of the following:

  • Knowledge of the refugee experience, research, and good links with Universities
  • Knowledge and experience of Volunteer Management
  • Experience of developing relationships with partner organisations, stakeholders, and supporters
  • Digital technology, communication, and marketing skills
