How does it work?

TimeBank will recruit and train volunteers as mentors to support up to 65 refugees to stay in employment for a minimum of six months.

After attending a volunteer training session led by TimeBank staff, volunteers will be matched with a refugee to begin their mentoring relationship and the pair will meet for around five hours each month, for a period of six months. Meetings will usually take place outside working hours.

Mentors will provide practical support on issues such as working with a variety of different colleagues, balancing work and family life and effectively coping with any difficulties that may arise.
