Young refugees round for tea!
BIRCH Network is looking for volunteer families to be involved in a new project working with young refugees who are living in the UK without their families.
BIRCH's new Family Befriending Project will support a group of volunteer families to offer a regular weekly or fortnightly meal to a young refugee (aged 16-25) who would appreciate the opportunity to be part of a family environment. If you or a family you know is interested, please get in touch with Lizzy at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07912367224 to express interest.
