After taking time to rest and recover over the Christmas break, we have come back into January with new energy and ideas to help as many people as possible and try new techniques to met the demand.
Over the last quarter we have stepped up to the new challenges of supporting refugees from Afghanistan and asylum seekers from other countries being isolated in hotels. Our Asylum Guide Coordinator had been meeting with people in hotels since 2020, however we now have two other staff members who go in every week with a team of volunteers to deliver activities and lessons to support people’s mental wellbeing.
We also continue to fundraise so that we can do more to support isolated people in hotels and prepare them for their life beyond those walls. To donate to that please click here.
