Peterborough & Cambridge

Mentors are given full training prior to being matched and then spend about 5 hours a month with their mentee, helping them to feel more at home in the UK. This might mean helping to write a CV, visiting a museum or art gallery, practising English or explaining the peculiarities of British humour.

‘The types of thing we do together have ranged from discussing current affairs so my mentee can practise and improve his English, to having a bite to eat in a traditional Congolese restaurant’ a mentor on the Time Together scheme.

Time Together Peterborough & Cambridge is run by TimeBank and based at the New Link Centre in Peterborough.

Mentors are of various ages and backgrounds, and come from all over the area including Peterborough, Cambridge, Stamford and St Neots but more are always needed.  Refugees taking part in the project live in both Peterborough and Cambridge.
