Thousands of people work in poorly paid, unprotected jobs. They provide a cheap and flexible labour force that keeps our cities' skylines rising, but with close to no job security. Many are trapped in false self-employment or cash-in-hand jobs that offer no financial stability. EU workers in particular remain invisible to local authorities, often relying only on personal networks and their own hard work.
A small donation to our cause or a few hours of volunteering can help us challenge this. Stand up for employment justice. Put an end to precarious work.
For every £1 of funding we've received since our foundation, we have helped recover £0.44 from someone who wasn't paid by their employer. Every year we help hundreds more people understand their employment rights, and assist them in improving their professional mobility.
Make a donation online using one of the methods below. Your support is what keeps our service free, multi-lingual, and accessible to the people who need it most.
The support of our volunteers lies at the foundation of the Work Rights Centre. They help us reach out to more migrant communities with translations and communications work. They add vibrancy to our information events, and can even help out with casework. If this sounds like you, have a look at our openings.
This is a great occasion to learn about employment rights, and get hands on experience in service provision. Guided by our Service Provision Manager, you will help clients understand their employment status and walk them through the first steps towards employment justice.
If you enjoy public speaking and meeeting people, this is a chance to hone these skills. You will help our team hold workshops, deliver presentations, and build bridges with local communities. This is a great chance to sharpen your communication skills, and work directly with our service users.
As a communications volunteer, you will help increase our visibility with our main stakeholders: local communities and likeminded organisations. You will scout the landscape of third sector organisations, identify opportunities for collaboration, and help us forge new relationships. This is a real chance to hone your network building and organisational skills.
As we are committed to making employment rights accessible to all EU nationals, we rely on the help of multilingual editors to help us translate our guides and disseminate them to the relevant stakeholders. This is a great opportunity to polish your communication and editorial skills.
