Education should be for everyone

by awitherick on 28 February, 2011

“You’re cold, the fence has left scars on your hands and your child is crying as you escape what can only be described as a nightmare.”

For a lucky few that nightmare should end when they reach our shores.

Helping them to stand on their own two feet is essential, and education is the key to this.  Many refugee women and their families miss out on access to employment and training due to poor english language skills. The Learning and Refugees Families project aims to support these families access training that can increase skills and employment opportunities.
In addition their children may struggle at school due to a lack of understanding
as to how they can best support them. They are working with agencies across the county to raise awareness of this project.
