Volunteer opportunities at Beacon

About Beacon
Beacon is a small Bradford-based charity that runs four projects providing practical support to asylum seekers. Most of its work is carried out by teams of very dedicated volunteers. In 2015 Beacon celebrated its 10th anniversary.

Volunteer Assistant Hosting Project Coordinator (part time) vacancy

Over the past 9 years this small, volunteer-led project has accommodated more than 60 destitute asylum seekers, most of them for many months, in the homes of Beacon's wonderful volunteer host households in Bradford. At least a third of guests have gone on to be granted leave to remain in the UK. Without Beacon's support, these people would be left street homeless in the UK or forced to return to the desperate situations from which they have been forced to flee.

The demand for the Hosting Project is significantly greater than Beacon's capacity to respond. Beacon is looking for one (or possibly two) people who would be able to volunteer 5-10 hours a week to assist the Project Coordinator to recruit, train and support more hosts. The nature of the project requires some flexibility, including some early evenings.

Beacon is seeking an inspired individual who:

  • Has a genuine desire to make a real difference
  • Has some experience of voluntary or paid work with asylum seekers or refugees and
  • Has good spoken and written English and
  • Is IT literate and has access to a computer with Internet

Travel and other expenses associated with the role will be reimbursed.

Help develop and support our work – join the Trustees!

Beacon is seeking additional trustees to help shape the future of the organisation through a period of significant change, growth and development. Beacon is looking for skilled and committed individuals to join the unpaid Board of Trustees. The Board is collectively responsible for the governance and strategic direction of Beacon. Successful applicants will be expected to take an active role in ensuring the organisation’s work towards its key missions, objectives and goals.

Beacon is especially interested in applicants with board/management committee-level experience and expertise in one or more of the following: fundraising, legal issues, equal opportunities, HR, marketing, strategic planning, issues facing asylum seekers and campaigning.

Trustees are asked to commit an average of 1- 2 days each month to the organisation, which will include attending board meetings, possibly sub groups and occasional events. They will be expected to remain well informed about the organisation and its activities and take a personal interest in and collective responsibility for its development and sustainability.

Ideally new board members will have previous experience in a similar role and some understanding of the voluntary sector and small charities.
