Volunteering stories

What is it really like to volunteer with us?

“If you join Scottish Refugee Council you will not be a tea-maker, a filing-cabinet filler or an office-sweeper. From the word go you are part of a team that treats you like one of them. You feel valuable, because you are.”  - Calum, Media Volunteer.

Volunteers support the work of every team at Scottish Refugee Council - we could not deliver our work without their contribution. Have a look at the videos below to hear first-hand from our staff and volunteers.
