24th September 2020: English at Home is still closed to new referrals, whilst we recruit and train new volunteers
If you know of a refugee or asylum seeker who is isolated or could benefit from practical support, please look at helpinleeds.com and the new and improved Learning English Leeds website.
English at Home helps people to learn a skill that is vital for everyday life.
We support refugees and asylum seekers who, for reasons of caring, health etc. are currently unable to attend classes. We develop students’ language skills so that they can cope with everyday life and become more independent.
We are committed to promoting cross-cultural friendship and enabling participation in community life.
We support our students to move on to other learning opportunities e.g. English classes or vocational qualifications.
An English at Home match can last anything from 6 weeks to 1 year.
24th September 2020: Following a recent recruitment phase, we have now closed volunteer applications until November 2020. We then hope to re-open for applications in time for our next lot of induction training in the New Year. If you’d like us to send you a reminder when we re-open, please click here. We really look forward to hearing from you!
