Last week was Volunteer week and here at Islamic Relief, we work with a great team of volunteers across the country. We know how passionate the community is about helping those in need across the globe.

We’re also keen to develop fresh talent and offer sector-based experience for those interested in a career in the non-profit sector. So with this in mind, for Volunteer Week 2018 we launched our LeadIR programme.

We offered six dedicated Islamic Relief volunteers the chance to take over our HQ in Waterloo and act as the de-facto UK Executive Board for the day. The team took on a variety of leadership roles for the day, ran a meeting with an agenda and were expected to show real decision making skills, whilst gaining a deeper understanding of their role.

What did this look like? Well, take a look and see them in action!

So what did the volunteer team have to say about their day at Islamic Relief? Read on to find out:

“I have had an amazing day taking part in LeadIR and I have learnt so much. This experience has been very insightful and motivating in reaching my goals in life.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time taking part in the LeadIR programme and feel I have benefited from this experience Alhamdulillah.”

“I enjoyed meeting and getting to know Samina. She is amazing Alhamdulillah. I enjoyed meeting the programmes team.”

Amazing job guys, thank you for all your head work and dedication. The future is in your hands! Here’s a special message from our Director:

Feeling inspired yet? Then why not sign up for LeadIR next year or for another one of our inspiring volunteer programmes? You’ll gain crucial sector experience, leadership skills and help make a difference to communities in need across the globe. The future is in your hands!
