Location The volunteering opportunities are around London at Regional Group meetings We are looking for volunteers to help organising our monthly AJR Regional Group Meetings all around London. The network of regional groups offer our members, who often have no surviving family and can find themselves to be very lonely, a unique opportunity to socialise and share their experiences. It is at such gatherings that many old friends have been re-united after more than 60 years. Since its inception, the outreach programme has enabled the AJR to identify and help many new members throughout. We need volunteers to help with refreshments and contribute to the nice and cosy atmosphere. These meetings provide members with the opportunity to attend a social get-together with people from a similar background. They have a cup of tea together, listen to interesting speakers and have a chat.
Description

We are looking for volunteers to help organising our monthly AJR Regional Group Meetings all around London.

Our members often have no surviving family and can find themselves to be very lonely. The network of regional groups offer a unique opportunity to socialise and share their experiences with people from a similar background. It is at such gatherings that many old friends have been re-united after more than 60 years. They have a cup of tea together, listen to interesting speakers and have a chat. Since its inception, the outreach programme has enabled the AJR to identify and help many new members throughout.

You as a volunteer will help with refreshments and contribute to the nice and cosy atmosphere. You will support one of our members of staff with setting everything up, serving tea and talking to the members. You will be given the privilege of hearing extraordinary stories, and the inter-generational bonds that inevitably form ensure the experience of the Holocaust will not be forgotten.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
