Volunteer Roles

Migration Buddy Volunteer

The Irish Red Cross Migration Programme is launching a call for volunteers to become Migration Buddies. This role acts as a link between newly settled refugees and their new local communities and assists them to access the relevant services and amenities in the area.

This might involve helping someone join local clubs/sports teams, linking them in with local services or simply meeting for a coffee and a chat. Buddies play a huge part in helping a refugee settle into Irish life by perhaps showing them their local bank, supermarket or assisting with an application for educational courses or jobs.
