Asylum Links, as a group of equal unpaid volunteers, wants to develop the skills of all its volunteers mainly on three dimensions: planning skills, training/management skills and fundraising skills. This is done with training and peer feedback through different stages.
We follow a action based system where every week, depending on how much time you have you can do an action of 2 or 4 or 8 hours on your own or together with other volunteers in Campaigning, Advocacy, Fundraising or else. When you do casework we advice not to take more than two clients at the time and some clients will have more complex situations so more than one volunteer will be needed. If you can coordinate you will also draw our strategy together with other volunteers and you will design the actions other volunteers can engage with.
The only rule we ask you to respect while you are part of our group, is that you will not start a one on one conversation with any of our clients. All contacts with our clients are open and monitored by all volunteers at all times so to follow our protection policy. Phone calls are extremely rare and focused on specific immediate issues. The normal exception is direct field support with local volunteers which follow precise safety rules to protect both volunteer and client, for example in the UK, you will have to be DBS checked before you meet a client.
You will have a peer evaluation every 6 weeks, so you can understand how you are doing and how we can support you better as a group.
We ask you to stay with at least 3 months if you are coordinating and 6 months if you are a activist. You can take any time off for as long as you need, just be communicative with the rest of the group.
Asylum Links is an Charitable Association of Members, so even if you will not have the time to volunteer with us anymore, you can become a Member and help us out in leading our strategy to better support our clients.
