Volunteers go in pairs with asylum seekers and refugees to events around the city. Volunteers are welcome to stay and enjoy the events themselves, or they are able to leave after arrival. The days and times of events vary, so volunteering is very flexible. There is also the opportunity to promote the events at the 'Conversation Club' which takes place regularly on Wednesday afternoons.
