We currently have a number of volunteering opportunities. If you are interested in any of these roles, or would like some more information, please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.
Disability Human Rights Forum Volunteer
In this role, you will help us to set up a new Disability Human Rights Forum for York. We are looking ideally for a volunteer who expects to be able to be a part of the project for around one year. Typical activities will be to help organise meetings (including enabling attendees to participate from home); assist in sending out information, invitations, and surveys; publicise the forum and events; contact potential guest speakers, etc.
Community Voices Volunteers
Community Voices is a project that is sponsored by City of York Council. This project seeks to engage with members of the community whose views and experiences are often overlooked or go unheard. We are currently developing the next phase of this project, in the light of Covid-19. Whilst knowledge of socio-economic rights would be an advantage, your ability to start conversations with a wide range of people is more important. Experience of interviewing and/or facilitating focus groups would be helpful in this role.
For this role, we are looking for a commitment of around 3 hours per week.
Young People’s Indicator Report Volunteer
We are delighted to be supporting the Youth Council, Show Me That I Matter and I Still Matter groups in creating a new human rights indicator report that reflects the human rights priorities of young people in the city. We are looking for a volunteer to help facilitate the later stages of the project in the coming months, working with young people to identify indicators, and collect and share information in appropriate formats.
