The Private Rented Scheme Project (PRS) helps refugees find private rented accommodation in London, by making links with landlords and agencies, providing advice and support in securing deposits, providing pre- tenancy training and help with welfare benefits applications. The project also continues to support clients after they have secured a tenancy, providing information and advice to assist refugees in their resettlement in the UK.

Volunteers are vital in delivering this service, as they are throughout the Refugee Council’s services. Volunteers receive support, training and supervision from the Housing Resettlement Officer.

Volunteers should have excellent communication skills, a good level of English language, good IT ability, and a commitment to the rights of refugees. Previous experience is not required, training will be provided. It is not essential to be able to speak a refugee language, but would be a great advantage.

 We are looking for 2 volunteers to start as soon as possible.
