How To Get Involved



Here are some ways you can get involved:


Volunteering


At the moment we are looking for new volunteers with Arabic language skills, ESOL experience or time during the week to help support the family.  If you are interested please let us know.. The team is split into groups with volunteers working in areas of their expertise or their interest, below are some examples of what we are working on.

 

We have now secured the property for our family to live in, if you have refurbishment skills and are free over the next few months get in contact with us and find out how you might be able to help.


Donating 


If you are unable to volunteer but would like to support our work there are other ways:  


  • donate funds, through our Just Giving page.  All funds raised go towards our work of resettling a refugee family into the area. 


  • donations of household items to help set-up the accommodation, ready for when our family arrives, this might include donations of furniture and household goods.


Partnering

doubles their chances of building a community.

When organisations work together and focus on their strengths, it more than doubles their chance of building a community.  Wherever possible, Bermondsey Welcomes Refugees works with like-minded partners who have the same vision.  There are a number of ways you can partner with us to support our work, including donating, offering a venue we can use free of charge to hold our fundraising events and donating pieces of work to auction. Get in touch and find out the ways you can work with us.

HOUSING

We are pleased to say we have found a suitable home for the family to resettle. 


If you have refurbishment skills or can offer support with furnishings and household good, please contact us.

FUNDRAISING

Through a difficult time, we have managed to raise 80% of our target £12k, but we still need to raise more so we can resettle and make our family as comfortable as possible. 


If you have ideas or have a venue we can use for our events please let us know. Check out our Facebook,  Twitter and instagram pages for details of our latest events.


You can also donate through our Just Giving page.

VOLUNTEERING

We aim to support our family relocating to the Bermondsey area and help them to become part of the community. Therefore, we are particularly looking for volunteers who are Arabic speakers and English tutors or volunteers who live locally and have time during the week to support a refugee family. Please get in touch to see if you can support us.
