How we help

We offer practical support with courses to develop English language skills, Saturday schools for children to help them with their core subjects, as well as advice clinics where people can come and discuss different issues such as housing and employment. We also provide workshops for women where they can not only develop their English, but also take part in other activities such as group cooking, health and wellbeing sessions, mentoring, women’s rights and Islam.

Our women’s workshops are for Muslim women of any ethnic background on Saturdays from 12pm to 3pm and our Supplementary school is in the same period for children of all ages from an Afghan background who are struggling at school.

Our ESOL classes are for individuals aged 16 and over where English is not their first language and we offer general classes and women only classes during the week.
