Do you have skills in ESOL or would you like to develop your understanding of ‘the refugee crisis’ beyond the tabloid headlines?
‘Skem International’ a group of refugees and community members from Skelmersdale, run two weekly events which are looking for more volunteers.
Every Wednesday and Friday, volunteers and refugees meet up. On Wednesday from 4-6, there’s a chance to play badminton, table tennis and other games in the Ecumenical centre. On Friday from 2.30, there is a drop in based in Skelmersdale Library where everyone is welcome to have a cup of tea and talk about their week. Boardgames and books are also available, and this is a great chance for individuals to ask for help with a complicated form, or to pick up a 1-1 English language coaching session.
Volunteers are very welcome – please come along any Friday. There’s no need to register or book, and there’s no commitment required.
