Preventing isolation for refugees

Quotemarks

Can you imagine being in lockdown somewhere where you can’t speak the language?

The isolation caused by lockdown is hard enough, but this is multiplied when you struggle to communicate. Our People from Abroad and Adult Learning teams have joined forces to solve this problem and support our Syrian refugees.

By sourcing and loaning laptops and 4G WiFi routers, they have ensured that every Syrian refugee household can connect to the internet. This means that not only can our staff keep in contact with them online, but they can also continue to attend their English classes, which Adult Learning are now delivering online.

Adult Learning are running classes twice a day Mondays to Thursdays for beginners and less frequently for more advanced classes.
