Family Support Coordinator

  • VO90141


Description

Community Sponsorship is a government programme that gives the power to us to welcome a refugee family to our community and opens a door to families that would otherwise not gain access to support.
Communities for Refugees Western Isles has already established a committee and has the support of organisations including Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and NHS Western Isles, both represented on the organising group.
Community resettlement is run with the support of local groups who feel they could come together and welcome a refugee family from the moment they arrive on UK soil.
“You will be their friends and neighbours, who have done this out of the goodness of your heart and out of love. You do not need to be an expert in refugee integration, but you need to know how your own community works and to be able to give hours and skills over a long time to help people make a new life.”
The group are looking for volunteer Family Support Coordinator – a key person who works directly with the family to identify their needs and brings in volunteers to help as necessary.
