Resettlement team seeking volunteers
THE OUTER Hebrides Resettlement Team is seeking more volunteers from Lewis to support re-settled families with aspects of day-to- day life, including using public transport, grocery shopping, attending appointments and participating in children’s activities.
Comhairle leader and chairman of the Community Planning Partnership Angus Campbell said: ‘The resettlement team is looking for volunteers who are organised and reliable, fluent English speakers, with a friendly, welcoming disposition who, ideally, would be available for at least two hours per week. They will be supported with appropriate training and guidance and reasonable out- of-pocket expenses will be covered. The team is particularly keen to hear from any Arabic speakers.’
