We’re not hiring!
Sorry, we’re not hiring at the moment – do come back and check, or see our volunteering opportunities below.
We have the following volunteer positions available at KLS. Do get in touch!
Learning Mentor Programme Administrator (Volunteer)
Love to Learn’s programme of matching learning mentor’s with young people from refugee backgrounds is growing and we really need someone to help with the administration. If you love being organised and want to help transform young people’s lives with an office-based role, then do get in touch. Our systems are all in place, and it’s a very rewarding job, and we’d love to welcome you to the team.
Commitment: 4 hours a week, based in KLS’ Love to Learn team, Battersea
Contact: Kathryn Kashyap: [email protected] and 020 7585 0339
Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees Furniture Coordinator (Volunteer)
Many refugees and asylum seekers in Wandsworth need furniture, for example a family with six children who don’t have any beds to sleep on. There are also lots of people offering furniture, but at the moment no one to match the offers with the people who need them.
Could you set up and run a scheme to match up offers of furniture for refugee families with families and individuals who need furniture? You would need to organise storage, transport and a system for sharing needs and offers – but there are plenty of people ready to support you.
Commitment: flexible, based at home (a desk is available if you would like it)

Love to Learn volunteers – calling all men!! (Volunteer)
Our Love to Learn team provides support and advocacy enabling young refugees to access educational rights and opportunities, enjoy learning, and have the confidence and aspiration to fulfil their potential.
We support a lot of young men and have a shortage of adult men from refugee backgrounds to support them. Our current volunteers tell us that they find the work very rewarding, and get back as much as they give. We offer full induction, training and supervision. Whenever possible, we will cover your basic costs (although this is subject to funding). Volunteers add loads of value to our work and allow us to work with more families and stretch our resources as far as we possibly can.
Love to learn currently has three volunteering programmes: 1. Learning Mentors, 2. Wednesday and Thursday Homework Club Helpers and 3. Casework Volunteers. For more information on each, and to download application forms, please click on the relevant link.
Commitment: attend three training sessions, one hour a week (mentors), two hours a week (homework club) for at least six months. The next training sessions are in June and September.
