We understand just how important volunteering is, not only for society as a whole but also for the individuals who decide to get involved. Volunteering provides people with an opportunity to contribute to good causes and also to develop personally. It can provide a pathway into work or new experiences to help open other avenues in life. Volunteering from amongst the BME community is also a great tool to combat divisive narratives about Minority communities.

REMA supports a range of community activities and organisations with volunteers.   Our work includes:

  • Engagement and promotion of volunteering opportunities
  • Development of volunteers (Training and Peer support)
  • Policy development and advice for local BME groups
  • Volunteer coordination and management to support civic events

Contact us to find out more about volunteering or to promoting your volunteering opportunities.

    “I’ve volunteered through REMA for the past year, straight from leaving school. It has really helped me experience the ‘adult/grown-up world’. I have learnt a lot of new skills and I feel much more confident about finding work after leaving college”  Fatimah Ali
