Restore Training Course Autumn 2022

Restore is motivating for action with our next training course for those interested in befriending or wanting to learn more about refugee issues.  We’re very excited to announce the dates for our next training session, which will take place on:

Monday evenings

3rd, 10th and 17th October 2022

7:15pm – 8:45pm

 

The three sessions will take place on zoom, and you can book your place by clicking here Places must be booked in order to attend, so make sure you register at the link.

All three sessions of the training course are different, and we require that anybody who is interested in becoming a befriender attend all three.  An outline of what is included in each session is:

Week 1: Global refugee issues, overview of situation in the UK, introduction to Restore and befriending including input from a volunteer befriender

Week 2: An overview of the asylum application process and introduction to refugee resettlement, including a refugee sharing about their experience of the asylum process

Week 3: Practicalities of befriending: guidelines, boundaries, safeguarding, support, contact with and feedback to Restore and how to apply

 

Please share this information with anybody you think might be interested in becoming a befriender, or finding out more about refugee issues.

We will also be sharing more information on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so if you follow us on social media, you can share our posts too.

For more information about the training course, please email Catherine, our Befriending Coordinator.
