One of AMURT’s great strengths is its people. Its people are concerned citizens attracted by the AMURT principle that compassion for everyone and everything is the starting point of relief and development. Many are full-time volunteers who provide thousands of hours of volunteer time to keep our administrative costs low. Contact us if you wish to know more about our volunteer placements.

London Feeding Programme Evening Distribution Volunteer
Do you have an hour or two to spare on a Thursday evening? Would you like to help those in need in London?
The London Feeding Programme has been running since 2011; come rain or shine our fantastic volunteers have been set up outside Lincoln’s Inn Fields, serving food and other donations to our beneficiaries. If you are available on a Thursday evening from 6.30pm-7.45pm and would like to get involved then please apply below and state your interest.
Do you live in Hackney or are able to cycle here, do you have a bike with panniers or a backpack and have some spare time to help those in your community?.
We are looking for someone to deliver energy bites to our partner charities for them to distribute to the homeless in our community.
You will be collecting our handmade energy balls from our office at 3a Cazenove Road, Stoke Newington and delivering them to one of our partnering charities in North or central London.
What impact will this have?
The nutritious energy ball recipe was first created by one of AMURT’s own volunteers when the COVID-19 crisis first emerged. The homeless were, and still are especially negatively impacted by the pandemic.
Many have compromised immune systems, poor nutrition, and hygiene and are more susceptible to the virus and to developing complications.
By helping us provide this nutritional support, you will be giving the homeless community a chance of a healthier and safer life.
We are looking for volunteers living in the immediate local area (or those who are able to travel between our office and charity partners) who have a good level of fitness, are personable, have a ‘can do’ attitude and have their own bike with panniers or a backpack. It is vital to have access to Google/GPS maps on the phone or other devices or a good knowledge of the area. No previous volunteer experience is needed for this role. Ideally, the successful volunteer would be available weekly or bi-weekly.
We are looking for volunteers to give a couple of hours of their time on preferably Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays to deliver our energy balls to different locations in London (other weekdays may be possible). They can choose to help on as little or as many days as they wish.
