Restore Training Course June 2022

Restore is motivating for action with our next training course for those interested in befriending or wanting to learn more about refugee issues. We’re very excited to announce the dates for our next training session, which will take place on:

Thursday evenings
9, 16 and 23 June 2022
7.15pm – 8.45pm

The three sessions will take place on Zoom. Places must be booked in order to attend, so make sure you register at the link.

All three sessions of the training course are different, and we require that anybody who is interested in becoming a befriender attend all three.

An outline of what is included in each session is:

Week 1: Global refugee issues, overview of situation in the UK, introduction to Restore and befriending including input from a volunteer befriender.

Week 2: An overview of the asylum application process and introduction to refugee resettlement, including a refugee sharing about their experience of the asylum process.

Week 3: Practicalities of befriending: guidelines, boundaries, safeguarding, support, contact with and feedback to Restore and how to apply.
