We are pleased to welcome on board 11 new Community Interpreters; 2 Arabic, 3 Farsi, 3 Urdu, 2 Sorani and 1 Multilingual (Arabic, Tingrinya, Tigre and Amaharic).
Bristol Refugee Rights relies heavily on the work of Volunteers. Our members are from all walks of life and most of them come from non-English speaking countries. We cannot do without our very valuable interpreters who help members with limited English to be heard, communicate with us and to access our services.
Rachael Bee (BRR) in collaboration with Mohammed El Sharif (Community Interpreting Training Manager) facilitated the training in January and February 2014.
The Community Interpreters will not only be an asset to the Bristol Refugee Rights Welcome Centre but also to the wider Bristol Community.
