Gain skills and experience whilst supporting refugees and asylum seekers in your local community
1-2 hours per week
What is the role?
London Welcome Project is a social centre for refugees, asylum seekers, migrants and other isolated groups. As an activity leader you will assist in running activities for the children, these could be arts and crafts or games. You will also be supporting visitors to learn and practice their English through conversation, language exchange and activities.
Who would benefit?
London Welcome project aims to challenge the injustice and discrimination that many of our members and visitors face by providing a place of welcome in London. They seek to empower their visitors, offering them the opportunity to socialise and break the isolation they so often face.
All volunteer travel expenses are reimbursed and you can get Kingston Award points for volunteering.
