Restore: 25 years!

Annual Celebration 

Wednesday 3rd July

7.15pm – 9.15pm 

St Martin in the Bullring

Restore is a project of Birmingham Churches Together and works with refugees and asylum seekers in Birmingham, Solihull, and Smethwick. Their vision is for a society into which all refugees and asylum seekers are welcomed, valued, and integrated. 

The befriending scheme involves the training and matching of trained volunteers with recently arrived refugees and asylum seekers to provide flexible, one-to-one relational support. 

This year Restore marks 25 years and so in July they invite you to join their celebration.
