Encouraging refugees to volunteer

Voluntary Action Sheffield runs The New Beginnings Project which supports asylum seekers and refugees to integrate into Sheffield life, through volunteering, employment, education and mentoring. 

 

The project links refugees and asylum seekers with external organisations to create and maintain mutually beneficial relationships. It also supports the organisations involved.

Moses Lutakome first started volunteering ‘to get out of the house, show my son his daddy is working’. That’s how he ended up getting the job he now does which helps other refugees into volunteering roles.
