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:
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. The flyer below can be shared on social media, or can be printed and shared.
For more information about the training course, please email Catherine, our Befriending Coordinator.
