EMIC is staffed by volunteers from diverse communities in Canterbury or have experience working with Ethnic Minority Communities, and can therefore provide culturally appropriate services, and act as gateway to their communities.

We encourage and value people with different ideas, backgrounds and experiences, because we can learn a lot from involving people from diverse communities and backgrounds.  EMIC’s hard-working leaders are drawn from many active local minority communities. Our resourceful Ugandan Coordinator/Development Worker, Romanian Vice Chair, Indian Secretary and Polish Treasurer are supported by team members from Turkey, Singapore, India, Uganda and Nepal.

Some of our volunteers work in teams, others work on their own. We are continually looking for volunteers and if you would like to join our volunteer team please send us a message
