Building Bridges

Building Bridges MK is a volunteer run organisation which provides supplementary education for young refugees in Milton Keynes that have been referred to us by the British Red Cross. We provide transitional English and Maths support in their own homes for 4-6 months.

Our aim is to provide basic English and Maths support for newly arrived children to build their confidence in communicating and integrating in school. No prior teaching experience is required. A full induction will be provided, and your initial session will be attended by a member of the administrative team as part of your training.

Once volunteers are inducted, we provide teaching resources and lesson guides which are aligned to the National Curriculum.

Please send enquiries to us via
