Helping the Helpers: A series

26/03/20

Volunteering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can do but it can be tough when the circumstances are difficult. That’s why we created Help the Helpers, our series of 5 minute videos, to share some of the things that we have learnt over the last few years.

Each video is on a different theme, with some of the amazing volunteer leaders who have coordinated the Refugee Support responses to the emergencies and crises where we worked.
