We’re particularly looking for trustees with skills in digital inclusion, cyber security and data protection, service design and delivery, grassroots programmes and community building, and immigration law, settlement and integration.

We strongly welcome applications from those who have experience of the asylum and/or immigration system in the UK.

Women for Refugee Women (WRW) is a dynamic charity that was founded in 2007 to support and champion women who have sought asylum in the UK.

Right now it is vital to stand in solidarity with refugee and asylum-seeking women, and it is an exciting time to join our great team in this rewarding role.

WRW operates in a challenging area. We work alongside women who have lived through extreme trauma, and are trying to create change at a time when the political environment is increasingly resistant.
