We are looking for lovely people who would like to welcome asylum seekers and refugees into Bristol. They would need to be able to give 2 hours a week, for up to a year either to meet one-on-one with an asylum seeker or refugee who has been referred to the project by other local help organisations or to support an Afghan family in the Resettlement programme. We look to reduce isolation and loneliness, improve mental wellbeing and help them get better local knowledge and contact, as well as practise English. You don't need to be an expert, just someone who is friendly, welcoming, can listen and has time!
Have a look at our website: https://www.bridgesforcommunities.com/programmes/b-friend or email nic.hope@bridgesforcommunities for more information on how to get started.
