Leeds City of Sanctuary will be running Volunteer Informations Sessions over the next few months, with the support of the wonderful Help Refugees.
If you have been thinking for a while about a way to get involved and help refugees and asylum seekers in Leeds, here is your chance to find the perfect opportunity for you!
The purpose of the meetings is to help people
- Get an overview of all the types of volunteering opportunities there are in Leeds, with organisations working around asylum and refuge
- Think about the skills and gifts they have to offer
- Think about when they might be available
- Find the organisation and role that best fits what they have to offer
- Find the organisation and role that best suits their interests and expertise
- Meet with people from different organisations to hear about their work and to ask questions
These meetings also help to remove pressure from smaller organisations who sometimes struggle to have individual conversations with every person who contacts them.
