What our volunteers say

“I started volunteering with the Evelyn Oldfield Unit as an English teacher in the e3 project but since then I’ve become involved with various other projects and areas of the unit. The office is a very nice environment and the staff are very supportive and helpful in their supervision” 

Thomas, EOU Volunteer

“I volunteer primarily on funding for the pro bono scheme that the Evelyn Oldfield Unit offers. This service is vital for migrants and refugees – groups who so often find themselves excluded from the justice system. I really enjoy volunteering at the Evelyn Oldfield Unit – the office is friendly, and everyone is keen to help out. On top of this, I have already started receiving training in various aspects of the work I am doing.”

Frank, EOU Volunteer
