I was delighted to visit Action Foundation in Sunderland recently to see at first hand the amazing work this project does in empowering refugees to overcome exclusion and poverty by teaching them English.
Action Foundation provides free, community-led Skills for Life English classes for asylum seekers, refuges and other migrants – to help them adapt and integrate much more easily.
Language really does change lives. You need the right words to speak to a doctor, apply for a job, forge a friendship or navigate the housing market. Action Foundation provides absolutely vital help for so many people in need.
