Supporting London and the South East • Supported by...
Not many of the 10,000 new arrivals currently speak English. We are looking for people to help with translation, especially if you can speak Dari/Farsi or Pashto.
If you or your business can offer food, we can put you in contact with a food bank near you. Many new arrivals from Afghanistan are struggling to make ends meet.
If you are able to donate money, there are a number of organisations and campaigns that you can support. If you add your postcode, we'll connect you to those in your area.
If you have experience teaching, especially with TEFL or ESOL, there are many organisations who need support to help new refugees learn English. Because of recent funding cuts, there are long waiting lists for many of these programmes.
People have donated clothes and other items, but it's a challenge to physically deliver them to new arrivals' houses. If you can drive, and have a car (or even better a van), this would be extremely helpful.
People have generously donated clothes and other items for new arrivals. Many organisations now need some people to help sort out these donations and coordinate delivering them.
Once you register your interest to support, we will try and match what you're offering to local organisations supporting new arrivals from Afghanistan. We are working with the voluntary and community sector, as well as the public sector to mobilise support as quickly as possible to areas with the greatest need.
Yes! At Time to Spare we have been helping connect volunteers to community organisations since 2019.
