All EU citizens can volunteer with Woodgreen. If you’re from outside the EU and have a work or study visa, you can volunteer for the activity detailed on your visa. Unfortunately, if you have a visitor visa you can’t volunteer with us.
It is possible to get a visa specifically to allow volunteering in the UK however restrictions do apply. Please contact the British Embassy for more information.
If you have refugee status or exceptional leave to remain, you and your family members are allowed to do any type of work including volunteering in the UK.
Asylum seekers are permitted to volunteer for charities and voluntary organisations, including while appeals against asylum refusal are being considered. You will generally receive a document stating that you cannot take up employment but this does not apply to volunteering. Please see the Home Office website for more details.
