We're a small charity based in Somers Town, a short walk from UCL. We're one of the most popular places for UCL students to volunteer, with around 30 students each year volunteering their time to support our programme.
We need Adult Literacy Tutors to help our beneficiaries develop their English language and literacy skills through 1-1 weekly sessions. The majority of our learners are women who have migrated from countries such as Bangladesh, Somalia and Eritrea, with others coming from Latin America and Europe. Many live in Somers Town itself and are more comfortable using a free and friendly community centre on their doorstep rather than more formal places like colleges. In the last year, our work has extended to support some Ukrainian refugees.
We accept applications all year round and look forward to hearing from you.
To provide guidance and support to learners working to improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening spelling or grammar. Whatever area the learner wishes to improve, we try to help.
