We named this programme Hiraeth, inspired by an ‘untranslatable’ Welsh word whose closest English equivalent would be homesickness or a deep longing for home.

We aim to support a group of young refugees and asylum seekers, between 14-19 years old, who are living in Cambridgeshire, trying to build a new life in the UK. Through this Summer School, similarly to what we did last year, we will provide them with opportunities to develop communication skills whilst building confidence and promoting a sense of belonging.

This will be done through online workshops and activities, in partnership with other organisations.

The sessions will be held between 27th July and 27th August, usually on Mondays and Thursdays in the afternoon.

All of our volunteers will be DBS checked and we will provide you with training so that you feel confident and able to help. It will be a very rewarding activity to be involved in!

If you wish to apply or discuss this opportunity please fill in this form and get in touch with [email protected] by Friday 10th July.
