A message from our team:
So glad you have decided to link in and register your offers of / interest in helping!
We just want to clarify – this hub is a place of contact, connection where people with similar ideas, hopes, interests or projects can more easily locate others on the same wavelength of interest or experience. So either you may be contacted by others exploring an idea or initiating a project, to see if you might help, collaborate OR you can explore your own idea and find others who might be interested to join you to develop it. We are setting up a word search that can help you locate overlapping interests, projects – or you can browse the website where we have brainstormed possible ideas (and welcome others to add to the inspiration list).
The next stage, when your idea has taken root locally, would be discussing the idea with people in the refugee support services, to see if there are asylum seekers and refugees interested to link in would be the next step. And taking the planning from there!
Projects and ideas can be low key, small numbers, informal – don’t have to be over ambitious – just well grounded and laced with kindness and clear organisation! Ideas that bring refugees and asylum seekers into local people contact and involve some form of equality-based collaboration, activities, exchanges are so welcome. And all ages or cross-generational ideas can be welcome.
It will be important to have some kind of orientation briefing about approaching collaborations with asylum seekers and refugees – and we will have that up on the website soon.
N.B. We have no funding – so initiatives have to rally their own local support.
If for any reason you would like to change, or even remove your details from this website, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – our web administrators will update or remove your listing as soon as possible.
The website is being managed by volunteers in spare time – so we don’t ‘manage’ ideas – we are just supporting the connections amongst people in our communities.
