Caritas **New Opportunity**
Caritas need volunteers to help at St. Aidans Centre in Wythenshawe for the following:
- 3 volunteers every Tuesday 12-2 pm to teach English to refugees and people who seek asylum.
- 4 Female students to lead some activities sessions for our Women’s group every Friday 12 pm- 2 pm.
- 2 volunteers to help charity with media and communications
- 2 volunteers to work on an evaluation of the refugee project and be able to visit hotels to interview people.
When recruiting volunteers, Caritas will consider equal opportunities and diversity principles. Caritas seek to be responsible for ensuring that all volunteers can perform their role safely. All volunteers are DBS checked and are required to receive safeguarding and cultural awareness training to confirm they have read the volunteers handbook and our complaints policy. They work with Manchester Adult Education Service, which offers training opportunities and resources to our ESOL.
