Welcome Hub Volunteers Training - Session 1, Afternoon 11th Oct

11/10/2022 1:15 pm - 11/09/2022 2:45 pm
Free

Bridges are delighted to be able to offer training for those volunteering at Welcome Hubs across the city.

Over two 1.5 hour sessions, we’ll cover a range of topics including cultural awareness and culture shock, an introduction to the hub model and role of volunteers, trauma and wellbeing, boundaries and confidentiality, and ways to signpost towards other support available here in Bristol.

We hope it will better equip you to be part of Bristol’s response to the war in Ukraine and enable you to help build a welcoming space for those fleeing here for safety.

Participants must attend both sessions 1 and 2, but can choose when they do so. Please register in advance and we will send you a Zoom link ahead of the session.

Refugee Voices with Elika Ansari

23/10/2022 7:00 pm -9:00 pm
12.00

With all that’s been happening in the world this year with the war in Ukraine, there’s never been a more important time to talk about the refugee crisis.

Join humanitarian writer Elika Ansari for this digital event as she shares her first-hand experience of working in the infamous Moria refugee camp on the island of Lesbos, Greece, three years before it burned down in September 2020. Elika has turned her experience into the book: The 5 Stages of Moria: the Worst Refugee Camp on Earth, which gives a fascinating insight into the harrowing reality of being a refugee.

Told from the perspectives of a single mother escaping an abusive husband, a young man who falls in love in a refugee camp, a brave little girl who saves her brother from a fire, an aid worker trying to make sense of the injustices surrounding her and an unaccompanied minor, Elika’s book and her talk will reflect the distinct yet unified voices of Moria camp, the largest refugee camp in Europe. This eye-opening event is not to be missed.
