“Retiring” from my full time work – in education, especially languages – I had the opportunity to see even more clearly how hard things were for new migrants to our supposedly welcoming and liberal city.

For just over three years now I’ve worked with Jacob and great colleagues to support destitute, at risk, people in Brighton. They come from Africa and the Middle East mainly, and all have so much to give.

As a volunteer with T4k, I’ve learnt so much from the individuals and families I’ve been working alongside. And from our great support network in the city.
