STEP Women’s Group Facilitator Volunteer

We are looking for a volunteer  who has previous experience of facilitating women’s groups. The group runs on a Monday from 1pm to 2:30pm and is based in Bradford. The group aims to support Syrian women to learn more about the UK and British culture. We are looking for the group to join in with activities and opportunities in the wider community and to build their own individuality. As the group grows, we will be looking at running other sessions in the evening.

This volunteer opportunity is perfect for someone who is working towards either a Counselling degree, Social Work, Mental Health or a similar accreditation. The ability to speak and understand Arabic would be an advantage.
