How you make a difference

English Classes are one of our core services, many participants we support have limited access to support in developing their English. Our classes support a variety of people to improve their English in a conversational and social setting. For many that we work with, this leads to increased confidence and ability to engage with other support and opportunities. As well as getting them to the minimum required level to join English courses at college. 

We rely on our volunteers to facilitate these sessions and provide the weekly support that is important to our participants. 

Outcomes we want to see are:

  • Increased confidence
  • Improved English
