Argyll and Bute welcomes refugees

Can you help?

Would you like to donate time and skills to refugees who have arrived on Bute?

If so, please let us know by filling out the form below.

Please include brief details of the support you can provide, for example:

  • organising events
  • befriending
  • teaching English

Expressions of interest will be logged and training will be provided, and we will get back in touch with you when this is arranged. Please be assured that an expression of interest is not a committment, and we thank you for your interest in helping out - even the smallest contribution can make a big difference. PVG checks (Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme) may be required for some forms of direct support - any costs will be met by us. For further information about the PVG scheme, please see the Disclosure Scotland website.
