TESTIMONIALS

  • WEEKLY ENGLISH CLASSES RUN BY A TUTOR and translation services

These are so important for our members, not only to improve their English language skills but also their self-confidence as they achieve their goals with every milestone they reach through their exams. Our future aspiration is for our members to be able to give back time in helping others new to the group to improve English language skills.

  • WEEKLY educational sessions in partnership with wea

To date, we have run different courses covering many topics such as ‘How to Support our Children with Reading and Phonics’, ‘How to support our children with Maths’, ‘Skills for Communication with Professionals’ etc.  These courses provide an important function by enabling our families to communicate effectively with schools and build important relationships between parent, teacher, and student.

  • WEEKLY FRIENDSHIP GROUPS TO SUPPORT personal development

Our on-going Friday session is very popular and due to the crèche facilities afforded to us by the school in which we meet, our ladies are able to discuss important issues, share any problems and talk together about how to resolve them.  We also been able to start up an additional friendship group on Tuesdays in collaboration with Early Help Family Support.
