Cultural Awareness Training
This programme helps people to understand and relate to people from different backgrounds. By reflecting on our own cultural influences, and by seeking to understand those of others, it helps to prepare people for cross-cultural experiences, for working in multicultural teams and for living in multicultural areas.
Welcome to the UK Training
This 5-session course helps recent arrivals in the UK to process their transition and adapt to life here. By exploring the roots of British culture, social norms, social etiquette, cultural values and transition, participants are equipped with the tools they need to make a good start to life in their new country.
Supporting Refugees Training
This course enables volunteers to contribute more effectively to the lives of those they are supporting. By understanding the reasons that refugees come to the UK, the challenges they face along the way as well as when they get here, and by looking at principles of cross-cultural interaction, volunteers will be better prepared for the role they are undertaking.
The Syrian Refugee Resettlement training covered all the bases in terms of what we were looking for. The cultural training was particularly valuable and helped our volunteers understand how to relate to people from different backgrounds. The interactive elements were also helpful, in thinking what it might be like to be a refugee.
I thought the training was interesting and helpful. I wish we could continue the course together!
The training we received from Bridges was excellent. Dan was able to share the benefit of his experience in a way that was both useful and easy to absorb. We learnt so much about Middle Eastern culture, all of which will be so helpful to us in understanding and supporting the Syrian family we hope to welcome. We highly recommend the training and commend BfC for the fantastic work they are doing.
Sharing a meal together gives people from different cultures and faiths the opportunity to meet and build friendships.
We bring people together around religious festivals and feasts — like Ramadan and Christmas — to break down barriers and challenge stereotypes.
