Restore training course, Spring 2022

The online training course is for people who are interested in finding out more about refugee issues, or who are interested in becoming a volunteer befriender with Restore (Birmingham churches supporting refugees).

The course is due to take place over three Tuesday evenings on:

1, 8 and 15 February 2022, 7.15pm – 8.45pm.

The three sessions will take place on Zoom. Places must be booked in order to attend.

All three sessions of the training course are different, and  anybody who is interested in becoming a befriender is required to 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

Please share this information with anybody you think might be interested in becoming a befriender, or finding out more about refugee issues.
