Restore: The Movie

We are delighted to launch Restore: The Movie!

Apologies that there’s no red carpeted, star-filled and paparazzi recorded event but…. we hope you will enjoy our new promotional film about Restore’s work.  Please share it widely to encourage potential volunteers and refugees and asylum seekers to join Restore.

For your very own premiere of the film, please see below!

We are extremely grateful to filmmakers Kyle Simms and Jill Lampert for the hours they have poured into filming and editing and for encapsulating the essence of Restore into just 3.5 minutes!

You can find the film on Restore’s YouTube channel, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

We hope the film will attract a new wave of potential volunteers to join our October training course and become befrienders.  This is essential as we know a growing number of refugees and asylum seekers who would benefit from a befriender.

We hope too it will be seen by refugees and asylum seekers who can then self-refer to Restore.
