Dear Community Board partners,


During Refugee Week 2022 (20-26 June), local charity Community Impact Bucks is promoting a new initiative which provides volunteer community interpreters to hosts and community groups in the county on a task-by-task basis.


Available through the Volunteer Matching Service, the volunteer interpreters are available to help in a community setting for example, interpretation at a coffee morning or interpreting on behalf of a host to help settle a family into the home. Both Ukrainian or Russian interpreters are available. For more details, visit Community Support for Ukrainian Refugees.


The charity has also recently appointed Tania Orlova as its Ukrainian Community Liaison Officer to coordinate community support for Ukrainian refugees in Buckinghamshire. If you are a host, refugee, or part of a voluntary group providing help to refugees and would like to be kept up-to-date on latest news and opportunities, contact Tania Orlova on tel 01844 617308



Kind regards
