Impact of our work
Through our projects and services, we have helped improve the lives of those from migrant, refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds. From advice and guidance and practical language skills to supporting the growth of their community organisations.
For the full breakdown of our work and impact over the past year, take a look at our annual report:
The Evelyn Oldfield Unit is always on the lookout for volunteers. If you can spare your time, we would like to hear from you!
Volunteering can be a very valuable experience, which can help you to gain new skills, meet new people and provide a much needed service to people who need it.
The Evelyn Oldfield Unit is a membership organisation run and led by its members who elect representatives to the management committee at Annual General Meetings.
To join, you need to meet certain eligibility criteria.
