The Wellbeing team offer a befriending service through Buddy Volunteers that aims to support new arrivals through peer to peer support and practical support with daily lives. Buddy Volunteers, many of whom have lived experience of asylum, offer much needed friendly support that helps asylum-seekers navigate life in their new city, offering support to access much-needed services and signposting to other agencies.

​The Wellbeing Project also offers ways in which asylum seekers can stay connected by improving digital access and increasing social connections either digitally or face to face. Our volunteers and participants help plan and organise regular activities such as cycling trips, hill walks, and city tours, improving physical and mental health.
