Refugee Resource’s Mentoring service provides one-to-one support for refugees and asylum seekers aged 13 + living in Oxfordshire. The service is possible because of the commitment of volunteer mentors who regularly meet up with participants to support them in reaching their goals for personal development and integration. It aims to increase confidence and reduce isolation.
