Herefordshire Council is currently seeking volunteer interpreters to work with Syrian refugees when they arrive in the county later this year. Training for volunteers has been arranged for two days in October.
(If you are already qualified as an interpreter with a relevant language pair, then we would also be pleased to hear from you, as we will need professional interpreters as well).
A workshop will be held on Saturday 8 October to cover issues which interpreters should take into account when working with refugees and asylum seekers. Although very focused on the role of the interpreter, some service providers might also find it useful.
Please feel free to share this information with any of your contacts.
