Our superstar volunteers are working hard to ensure the refugees and asylum seekers we support don’t feel abandoned or become more ilsolated now that we can’t visit or run drop-ins. We’re providing school work support for children, English lessons for everyone who needs them, social chats and mental health support, all via video calls. The children are having weekly group video calls, when they share with each other what they’ve been up to and things they’ve seen, made or written, and tablets were provided for the families who didn’t have any kind of computer. Volunteers are also supporting each other with regular calls and messages, and we – Sanctuary in Chichester and those we support – are all very grateful for our lovely community.
