Communities Together Project

Who: Anyone aged 18+

Where: Cardiff

When: Friday Morning, Friday Afternoon

Contacts: Frankie Hackett

This is a NEW initiative, where SVC aims to pair SVC volunteers with volunteers from the asylum-seeker community. Together volunteers will help develop an outdoor healthcare and rehabilitation centre that is being designed to benefit the well-being of hospital staff, patients and the local community. This project is led by our partners at Down to Earth (DTE).

This is a 7-week volunteering opportunity.

Your Volunteer Role:

  • Your involvement in this project will enable the opportunity for asylum-seekers to develop their use of the English language through informal communication.
  • You will be supporting the integration of asylum-seekers into the local community.
  • As a group you will develop new skills:
    • Practical skills: green woodwork skills; maintenance and construction skills; tree-planting; taking part in the meadow life flora and fauna surveys; and experience in fencing, fire lighting etc.
    • Creative skills: creating own walking sticks, bug hotels, flower presses, wind chimes, etc.

Where?

University Hospital Llandough

When?

Weekly, every Friday, from 10:30am - 2:30pm

7-week commitment from Friday 16th September - Friday 28th October.
