The Refugee Women's Centre is run by a small core of co-ordinators and a team of vital long-term volunteers on the ground. We work in an all-female team of 8-10 volunteers. They are supported by past volunteers and collegial board members off-site who are in daily contact. 


As part of the team, volunteers need to respond to ever-changing situations in a fast-pace environment. It is necessary to be adaptable and resilient. Activities vary each day but may include distributing material aid, connecting people with professional services, case work- including supporting women who have experienced SGBV and/or running a psychosocial activities, to name a few. 

We understand that it is not always possible for people to volunteer on the ground. However, if you would like to support the RWC and have other skills to offer, such as advocacy, fundraising and visual content, we would love to hear from you.
