We are looking for a Cooking and Community Support Volunteer
News 1 August 2019
Room to Heal is a human rights charity and therapeutic community based in London. We support refugees and asylum seekers who have survived torture, trafficking and other gross human rights abuses to rebuild their lives in exile through an integrated programme of therapeutic and casework assistance. At the heart of our work lies the cultivation of community, through which our members can restore meaningful relationships with themselves and others, overcoming the legacy of their traumatic experiences. We have over 100 members from 30 different countries.
About the role
Tuesdays are the busiest days for our community – being the day that our members attend for group therapy, a community lunch and afternoon activities. We are looking for a volunteer to support us throughout the day.
- Supporting our existing volunteer chefs to shop for and prepare a meal for the community. Take charge of preparing the meal when they are not available.
- Facilitate the tidying up process (which our members take an active part in).
- There’s also the opportunity to help facilitate afternoon activities if this is something that would interest you (such as therapeutic gardening, winter craft workshops, etc).
