Role Aim: 

Let us know the purpose of the role and what it is designed to achieve. Salusbury World provides educational, social and emotional support for refugee children and their families. This project was born out of the understanding that this group of young people face significantly more barriers to learning (no or limited English language, no or little previous formal learning, poor understanding of subjects) and that these barriers can limit their ability to achieve. Our Homework Club volunteers support children from refugee and migrant families in Year 2 upwards with their homework in order to help overcome these barriers.
