Would you like to use your knowledge, skills and experience to help young people who have arrived unaccompanied in the UK with their education and to feel part of the local community?
Amity Hub is a new project opening soon in the centre of Newcastle under Lyme and will be offering support, guidance, work placements, training, education and volunteering opportunities plus a whole range of enrichment activities for Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children who are making a new start in the UK aged 13 – 25 years of age. These young people are cared for by Staffordshire County Council.
Amity Hub’s values are based on community cohesion, integration and progression for young people, aiming to work closely with local business, charities, educational facilities and volunteers.
By teaching the young people we support the life skills needed, we hope to enable them to be more independent holistically. This in turn takes increasing pressures off other services and benefits them and the wider community.
If you are passionate about helping young people and want to make a difference while gaining valuable experience, we can offer you a free DBS check, free training and paid travel expenses. All volunteers can access regular supervision and will receive an induction as well as regular support.
