Vick Hope chats to Kate Thornton about how volunteering for charities can help us find community and purpose in lockdown, while helping our society’s most vulnerable people. In her local area of Hackney, Vick volunteers for the charity Akwaaba, providing care packages and casework assistance for migrants. She is also involved in the Amnesty UK International campaign to transform the Domestic Abuse Bill to ensure it protects migrants against domestic abuse, and is taking part in Choose Love’s Around The World in 40 Days challenge to support people in refugee camps against the coronavirus pandemic.
