A global cost-of-living crisis, gaping inequality and an overheating planet are all symptoms of a world that isn’t working for children.
A greener, fairer future for children starts with you. In your city, town or village. In your school, workplace, or community centre. In conversation with your friends, neighbours or elected officials.
As a Changemaker, you’ll build public and political support for putting an end to new fossil fuels by organising stunts, collecting petitions and lobbying your MP. Your voice will let those in power know that we care about creating a better world for all children.
We also want to recruit volunteer leaders to build a team of members in their area. If you would like to be a group leader, we will be running a volunteer leader training day in London on Sunday 26th November from 12pm – 5pm, so you would need to be available to attend that day (we will cover the cost of travel and provide lunch).'

About Rossendale Refugee Support Group
We aim to provide a space for those in Rossendale as refugees or seeking asylum have somewhere to meet people, find information and support and opportunity to practise English. We do this mainly through providing a weekly drop-in session on Wednesday mornings 10.30-12.30 in Haslingden.
1. Drop-in sessions. Volunteers do not necessarily need to be able to attend every week, but do need to be able to come at least once or twice a month. Volunteer tasks at the drop-in include
o Talking to those who attend, to enable people to practise English conversation, including speaking to those who speak little English
o Noting and attending to any requests for help (this doesn’t require specialist knowledge or skills)
o Playing board games etc.
o Taking on additional tasks as needed (and according to volunteer’s skills) e.g. taking details of new attendees, organising bus fare refunds, leading group discussion etc.)
Many of our group don’t speak a lot of English so interaction needs good interpersonal skills and a willingness to use Google translate etc.
2. Tasks outside the sessions. If possible (and according to the volunteer’s skills and interests) we welcome volunteers taking on occasional ad hoc tasks for the group outside the sessions, for example dealing with digital exclusion scheme applications, organising or participating in trips, supporting refugees with tasks such as obtaining information, completing forms etc, mostly remotely.
