Work with paid staff to deliver case work. They help deliver Quick Advice sessions and are able to provide a higher level of social support to more people who may need more social support. Some volunteers have gained skills and knowledge to challenge wrong decisions up to tribunal stage.
Evening Student volunteers
Help run our evening Pro Bono solicitors sessions from managing the waiting room , taking instruction and providing a synopsis of the matter.
In some cases the qualified lawyers will work with you to help make representations on behalf of clients.
Front desk placements and admin volunteers
Have helped us to extend our opening hours and access to people calling in outside the Quick Advice sessions times. They also help caseworkers stay on top of paperwork.
All volunteers’ work is checked and supervised. We are open to new ideas and possible roles for volunteers if it helps us to improve services and quality. If you would like to volunteer for Nucleus please download the volunteer application form and e-mail us at advice[at]nucleus.org.uk.
