We are a small grass-roots organisation who rely on a community of passionate volunteers. At the heart of our work lies the cultivation of community.

Volunteer with us

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. For our services to run smoothly, we rely on a number of committed and passionate volunteers
