We are looking for volunteers to support refugee families of Syrian descent moving into the area, to settle into a new country, which includes learning a new language and adapting to the culture and lifestyle of the UK.

We have two volunteer opportunities:

1.  English Teaching Volunteers who will offer our families roughly 8 weeks intensive lessons in the family home once they arrive or until they have a college place.

2.  English Teaching Volunteers who will offer lessons to families in addition to their college course.

We welcome teachers with a CELTA certificate, along with other ESOL qualifications.  We also supply a course which can be followed by volunteers without teaching experience.  Ideally the volunteer would visit the home once or twice a week for about an hour to one and a half hours.

What skills do I need?

Volunteers need to be understanding, patient, empathetic, and able to listen actively to the individuals and understand their needs.

  • Families and Parenting
