BME Volunteering Opportunity with SLAM


Msaada (Swahili name meaning giving back), is a volunteering programme for people from the Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) communities who want to support BME people who are living with a mental illness.

Looking for a chance to give back, make a difference and gain experience?

For the last seven years, volunteers in the Msaada programme have been helping people by performing roles ranging from volunteer befrienders, ward visitors to admin roles.

The programme is an opportunity to improve self confidence, meet new people and change lives. Many volunteers have gone on to pursue a career in Health & Social Care, nursing, medicine or social work.

Do you qualify?

No previous experience is necessary, but you must be willing to commit to volunteering for a minimum of three hours per week for nine months. Volunteers have to provide two references and pass DBS clearance and Occupational Health checks.

How to apply:

Please note, this is not a Community Southwark role.

For more information and application packs, please email Joseph Kiguwa or call 0203 228 9827.
