Get Involved

There are many ways in which you can get involved with the activities of Entraide:

Volunteer with us

EntraideUK are looking for a number of volunteers to support the vital work we do.
Volunteer Befrienders are matched to an individual asylum seeker or refugee. The aim for the volunteer is to support the person they are matched with
• to familiarise themselves with the local area,
• to help them integrate into the local community,
• to gain access to other services and
• to help alleviate the emotional stress caused by past trauma and the present asylum process.

Time Commitment:
Volunteers must be able to spare two to three hours per week on a flexible basis and some daytime availability is preferred even at weekends. Befriender matches vary in length of time. Volunteers must be able to commit to the role for a minimum of six months, attend regular supervision sessions and attend mandatory training.

We are based in Chelmsley Wood however, volunteers visit the clients in their own home so you must be prepared to travel some distance either by walking, car or public transport.
