Support Volunteer Syrian Project South Gloucestershire

Knightstone Housing are resettling Syrian families to live in the South Gloucestershire region. We are working in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council to settle families under the Vulnerable Persons programme.

Volunteers are crucial to making this happen. Could this be you?

  • Developing a relationship with the family in which time can be shared and an understanding developed
  • Encouraging families to widen their network of relationships and to use effectively the support and services available in the community
  • To take part in reviews with the family and the resettlement manager
  • To keep records of visits to the families as requested by resettlement manager
  • To share information with the resettlement manager and contact the resettlement manager immediately if there is concern about the physical or emotional and financial wellbeing of any member of the family

Our expectations of you

  • To attend core training session arranged by Knightstone
