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.

If you’d like to volunteer as a mentor on RISE, think you would benefit from a mentor, or know someone who would, please contact Judita, the Project Co-ordinator, on 0203 111 0730 or email judita@timebank.org.uk.

Or just click on the Application Form button to download the volunteer application form, send it back to us, and we’ll be in touch.
