Volunteer Interpreter (Kurdish Sorani, Arabic, Pashto, Amharic, Albanian, Spanish)

We are seeking volunteer interpreters to support with bi-weekly outreach sessions at the local Asylum Support Accommodation.  The Outreach Surgery supports asylum seeking, or refused asylum seeking, members to understand and access their rights and entitlements. Residents seek protection from a large number of countries and many have limited English. The need amongst these members of our community is high, and available support limited. For this reason, AFRIL are seeking interpreters who can proficently interpret between English and one (or more) of the following languages Kurdish Sorani, Arabic, Pashto, Amharic, Albanian and Spanish.
