How To Get Involved



Here are some ways you can get involved:


Volunteering


We are always looking for new volunteers, if you are interested in volunteering with us, please let us know.. We need a variety of skills within the team from financial to languages, but whatever skills you have let us know and see how you might be able to support our work. 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.

 

Once we secure our self-contained property we will be looking for volunteers to get the accommodation ready for when the family arrive, if you are a tradesperson or have refurbishing experience you can support us by offering your skills and time.


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, donating pieces of work to auction or if you are a landlord with properties for rent. Get in touch and find out the ways you can work with us.

HOUSING

We are looking for a suitable self-contained property, for our family, with local amenities close at hand. The landlord can expect a guaranteed rental income for 2+ years.


If you know of a property, either where you are living or in the area you live that is or will be available to rent, please let us know. If you are a

landlord or know a landlord that is looking to rent their property, ask them to contact us.

FUNDRAISING

Although our fundraising has been low key over the past few months due to the current situation, we are now starting to hold fundraising event.  We need to raise our target of £12K . If you have ideas or have a venue we can use for our events please let us know. Check out our Facebook page and Twitter pages for details of our latest events.


You can still donate through our Just Giving page.

We aim to support our family relocating to Bermondsey and help them to become part of the community. Therefore, we are particularly looking for individuals who are Arabic speakers, English tutors, volunteers with benefit system experience and education specialists. Also, we are looking for volunteers with knowledge of the area. But, please get in touch to see if you can support us.
