The Cornwall Faith Forum Refugee Community Link Project

In September 2016 the Cornwall Faith Forum (in partnership with the Cornwall Refugee Resource Network and the Cornwall Islamic Community Centre) were awarded a bid from Cornwall Council to provide community link support to the refugee families settling in the County.

The project is led by two Community Link Project workers with a wealth of willing volunteers.

The Cornwall Faith Forum Refugee Community Link Project provides the ‘human touch’ for the new comers welcoming them into the locality.  The families need a lot of support now living in a completely strange and new culture with a different language after their lives and families have been disrupted.

Volunteering with the CFF Refugee Community Link Project

The work of the community link project supporting the refugee families is varied and worthwhile and there are many needs which cannot be met without the aid of volunteers.   The volunteer roles we have currently developed are as below:

  • Coffee morning volunteers
  • Family befrienders
  • English language volunteers
  • Activities organisers
  • Setting up new home support volunteers

Volunteers will be safely recruited and some roles may require a DBS check.  Safeguarding training is required.

All volunteers will receive induction, supervision and appropriate training.
