RedR UK and the Humanitarian Leadership Academy are running a series of orientation workshops specifically designed for volunteers operating in the European refugee response. The workshops will take place across Europe in locations including London, Calais, Belgrade, Lesbos, and also in Macedonia, Croatia and Slovenia. The workshops are particularly suitable for those who do not have previous experience in humanitarian response.

The two-day orientation workshop provides volunteers with access to key basic information that will enable them to operate more effectively and keep themselves and those with whom they are working safe, including an introduction to a range of topics: the humanitarian context, core humanitarian principles and standards, protection, child safeguarding, personal well-being and resilience, and safety and security.

The workshops will run from May 2016 onwards across Europe. More information, including instructions on how to secure a place, is available here.
