Migration services volunteering

Imagine arriving in a country where you know no-one and don't know where to start. Every year, we help thousands of vulnerable people adjust to a new life in the UK. Could you spare some time to help?

Many of the people we help have lost contact with their loved ones. Our international family tracing service can help put them back in touch. We've been offering this service since the First World War – helping families separted by war or disaster. Would you like to help reunite loved ones?
