Red Cross - Pathways to Settlement
Red Cross is the primary provider of support for families settling in Palmerston North under the refugee settlement programme. Red Cross currently settle 165 individuals (approximately 40 households) - many of whom are young people or children.
Red Cross are currently seeking willing volunteers to join their team and make a difference as a refugee support volunteer. Volunteers are essential for this programme as they provide much of the practical and social support that enables these families to get to know our city and to cope with the day to day tasks that may be challenging to them. For more information about the programme, please read the following information sheet.
Volunteers are needed to help families arriving on 27 April 2018 build new lives in our community. All volunteers will take part in a comprehensive training course, starting on 13 March 2018.
