Journey Asylum Seekers Group leadership volunteers
The Journey LGBT Asylum Seekers Group meets on the third Friday afternoon of each month at Birmingham LGBT Centre between 1pm and 4pm. We aim to create a safe and welcoming space for people who often feel very vulnerable or isolated, with food and help with transport. We signpost people to sources of help and advice and meet with individuals when they need to share sensitive information or seek support in the asylum process (we are not counsellors or lawyers!). We also have a discussion and sharing group at the end of the afternoon.
Would you be interested in applying to be part of the volunteer leadership team? We would be particularly glad to hear from females to balance up the team.
Please contact Phil Hoar on 07484 837 773 if you would like to know more about what is involved and the support and training we can offer.
