AFHUK is the UK chapter of Architecture For Humanity, a non profit organisation promoting architectural and design solutions to global, social and humanitarian crises.
We’re currently moving to the new shared site for all the chapters of Architecture for Humanity.
If you’d like to volunteer with AfH, the best thing to do is join us on the new site for the London Chapter of AfH, where we’ll be sharing news of any upcoming projects and events to get involved in.
These are still early days in the development of AfH UK and we are therefore looking for people who want to shape the organisation and for those who want to volunteer under the guidance of the organisation.
There are several ways to get involved. For example, you can:
* Help plan an event
* Raise funds
* Help with administration
* Distribute literature
* Help with technical input to projects
* Help organise our work
* Run the newsletter
* Help design/maintain our website
* Make a donation
Help for Projects
AfH UK is an organisation designed to provide assistance to organisations based in the UK who need help with projects within the built environment. For detailed information on what we do please contact us and we will send you information.
We are also assisting projects in the developing world where the promoting organisation is based in the UK.
We do not send volunteers into the field, but can recommend organisations which do.
