Come and join us! It takes a whole community to welcome a resettled family. Whether you volunteer a lot or a little of your time, each contribution will make a huge difference. Our volunteers work in one or more of the following groups:
- Core organising committee;
- Safeguarding/ welfare;
- Education and training;
- Publicity/ communications.
We also need interpreters so if you speak Arabic, we want to hear from you.
Undoubtedly the most rewarding part of the scheme will be meeting the family, befriending them, and helping them to make a home here. To that end, we will need a committed team of befrienders who will meet the family from the airport, take them to their new home and show them around the area during their first few weeks here. Befrienders will show the family local schools, amenities, GP surgeries, help the family to navigate local transport and show them the wonderful place that London is to live.
If you would like to be a befriender, please register your interest and let us know of any relevant skill you might have (safeguarding experience, languages) at firstname.lastname@example.org
