Welcome to new Volunteer Co-ordinator Lou

Lou has been with us for a few weeks now and has kindly written about her first week as a volunteer co-ordinator. First days at Yarls Wood Befrienders Wow, what a week it’s been so far! A wonderfully warm and welcoming first few days from the team at Yarls Wood Befrienders, though I suspect the wonderful Jess probably has purple ears from all the questions I keep firing at her! And the office with windows that point at the sky is just fabulous – especially when its blowing a hoolie as it has been this week and changes every few minutes! There is a huge amount to learn, but that’s exciting, always up for a challenge (as long as it doesn’t involve cold water!) Visiting Yarlswood itself is ha

We offer befriending support to people held in Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre, aiming to reduce their isolation, reinforce their self-esteem and affirm their human dignity.
