Volunteer

Sahir House is currently closed due to lockdown restrictions.
Sadly, due to Covid 19 related guidelines, our premises are closed and many of our usual volunteering recruitment and activities are suspended until further notice. We are holding regular volunteer team meetings with our existing volunteers online to keep in touch and provide update training.

However, if you are interested in volunteering at Sahir House, there are lots of ways you can support the vital work of our charity as well as raising awareness and challenging the stigma associated with HIV, gender, sexuality and asylum issues. See our World AIDS Day page and ideas in our volunteer pack here.

To keep in touch and register your interest in volunteering, please complete your details in our pack and return to Sahir House (We will respect your personal details and not share with any third parties). We will send you our monthly newsletter with news, views and activities going on.

Thank you for your support and interest and we look forward to seeing you soon hopefully.
