Migrants Organise has coordinated a successful mentoring programme for over ten years. The aim is to match volunteers with our members (refugees and migrants) who need support to set goals to help them rebuild their lives here. Having consistent support that focuses on wellbeing, socialising as well as improving skills is a huge boots to the confidence and self-esteem of many members.
The support depends on the needs of the individual- it could be about settling into London, getting to know the local area, helping them to get a job or to volunteer etc We will help you identify needs and help you plan to meet this.
You’d need to be available for a couple of hours a week for around 6 months and happy to travel to a location convenient to your ‘match’. Travel expenses included.
They are particularly looking for male mentors for this opportunity. This is because we already have a wonderful team of female volunteers, and a few of our members would benefit from a match with a male volunteer.
Interested? Our next induction evening in Ladbroke Grove is on Monday March 25th, email Heike@migrantsorganise.org to express your interest.
