‘Welcome to Swansea’ is a project which aims to provide a warm welcome to asylum seekers and refugees (participants) when they first arrive in Swansea.
Participants will be met by a volunteer mentor who will introduce them to places, people and groups. The purpose of the project is to support participants to do the everyday things that are important to them.
For instance volunteers might be involved in demonstrating bus routes, supporting to attend social groups or just getting to know Swansea more.
We are not currently looking to recruit any more Welcome to Swansea Mentors, as we’d like to give everyone we have trained the chance to use their skills. If you would like to have your name added to our waiting list, please email Stepheni Kays, [email protected]
