Volunteer

As a charity we depend on the support of volunteers—both those who are in the legal field, and individuals with other skills.

Universities and law firms: we run a number of different volunteering projects, including with city law firms. We also work on volunteer projects with universities. If you are a university or law firm who would like to work with us, please contact miclu@islingtonlaw.org.uk

Other volunteering opportunities: we are thrilled whenever anyone wants to give their time and skills to help us. However we are a small team without a dedicated volunteer manager. Our needs change regularly, so please check back to see if you could be a good fit. Or alternatively please fill in this form and we’ll contact you.

Current skills needed:

  • Communications volunteer: we are looking for an experienced communications professional to support us share the work that we do. If you are a self-starter with bags of initiative, and if have experience running social media campaigns, drafting press releases, writing blogs and managing website content as well as an understanding of the NGO / human rights sector, we would love to hear from you.
  • Fundraising volunteer: we need support both strategically and on the ground to develop a self-sustaining fundraising stream. If you know how to raise funds through writing grants proposals, running campaigns or approaching corporations and high-net worth individuals, please get in touch with us.

Other skills:
