TANDEM - Support to refugees

What is Tandem?
Tandem is an initiative to get refugees, asylum-seekers and organisations learning, working and growing together.
Tandem was set up to help and support refugees and asylum-seekers residing in Belgium. We aim to facilitate their opportunities to contribute to the community, and support the restoration of their dignity and autonomy through initially short-term volunteer placements at different organisations. Tandem also aims to bring the direct experience of individual refugees and asylum-seekers and the challenges facing them into NGOs. These organisations are often concerned about the situation of refugees and asylum-seekers but may not have identified opportunities to support directly individuals in their local areas.
