Volunteer Role Descriptions

Salusbury World relies on our extended family of over 100 volunteers to support and empower refugee children and young people in Brent. Volunteers help run our after-school, homework and holiday clubs, mentor young refugees and help them overcome barriers and realise their right to education. All volunteers are given appropriate training and supervision.

Salusbury World reimburses all reasonable travel and subsistence expenses.

Educational Mentor

Mentors assist mentees with their schoolwork and related skills (e.g. literacy, numeracy and research). Many also offer advice and practical help around careers and accessing further and higher education.

Homework Club Helper

For the last 2 years, the Salusbury World team have been successfully recruiting and training volunteers to support Primary School children with their homework. The project was born out of the understanding that this group of young people face significantly more barriers to learning.
