Refugee Support Network

Crisis to classroom - helping young refugees and asylum seekers progress in education

We support a large number of young asylum seekers and refugees to access, progress and thrive in education. Many of these young people are in the UK with out their families and are looked after by the local authority. One of our core programmes is to recruit volunteer mentors to support young refugees with homework. We ask all volunteers to submit a comprehensive application form, supply references and complete a DBS check. As such we are dealing with a lot of confidential information and we would love a team to help us do a data protection audit and come up with an action plan to ensure our systems and procedures are best practice. In addition we know that our use of IT is inefficient and our levels of access are not well thought through so we would also hugely value a team who could help us propose a structure for online filing and provide training in this.

The Eleanor Rose Foundation

Ellie's Army - developing a cancer charity volunteer force.

Elliesfriends.org was launched at the end of 2014. We won two awards in 2016 and the judges saw the opportunity to 'scale up' the initiative, supporting more adults living with cancer in the UK. We are looking to manage, retain and grow the fledgling "Ellie's Army" volunteer force in order to source more products and services for the website, and to tell adults living with cancer about our service. We need to analyse the volunteer sector, consider how to maximise value from existing users, develop a retention and engagement strategy and draft training and promotional materials.

The Hunger Project UK

The Unleashed Women Leadership Fund

Research and our experience with The Hunger Project's programme partners, has shown that investing in women and girls has ripple effects throughout a community. “There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women” Kofi Annan (Former UN General-Secretary). Our vision for the ‘Unleashed Women Campaign’ is to bring women together to end hunger and poverty. This campaign is a platform for women in the UK to show their solidarity with women around the world. United we will bring together our skills, talents and passion to work towards something remarkable – ending hunger by 2030.

Reprieve

Building Operational Capacity at Reprieve

At Reprieve we like to think of ourselves as a small, feisty organisation of human rights defenders who speak truth to power. We are determined to create a world where no one has to face the death penalty, and where no one experiences extreme human rights abuses as a result of counter-terrorism practices that violate international law. As a result, we plough the majority of our resources into hiring lawyers and investigators whose job it is to root out and end these abuses. However, this leaves our tiny Operations team with a huge amount of work to manage between them. This project will help support and build the capacity of our heroic Operations Team by improving Reprieve's budgetary, monitoring and evaluation, staff retention and security procedures. We're open to refining the scope of the project in line with the specific skill set of any BeyondMe Team, so please do get in touch if a particular aspect of the project appeals to you!
