Peckham Vision

Peckham Vision are looking for volunteers to support their work. Here's the link to the role profiles and background to the organisation.

 

Administrative Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation and we could not achieve the level of success we do without their valuable input.

Southwark Law Centre has a variety of exciting volunteering opportunities. We provide our volunteers with excellent support to ensure they get the most out of their time volunteering with us. We accept volunteers from universities, colleges and the local community and from individuals expressing an interest in law. Please note, the role available is that of Administrative Volunteer, however there is the opportunity to be involved in the legal side of our work with supervision. You will also at some point attend court/tribunals, clerk hearings and sit in on client interviews with caseworkers where applicable.
