We are inviting organisations and people that are interested in supporting and working with refugees as volunteers, as well as partners who can work with us to make a shared difference to people’s lives.

It is an opportunity to hear about what we are doing and an opportunity to network with like-minded people. Please get in touch with Ruth or Viktoriaor email: info@vacoventry.org.uko find out more.
