Learning English language
Speaking and understanding English enables people to integrate into life in the UK.
It can help you to:
- find employment
- improve your employment prospects
- access and make good use of local services
- become part of community life and make friendships with people from different backgrounds
With better English, you will be less vulnerable to isolation and loneliness. You can build your confidence to speak up for yourself.
We are prioritising English language support as part of our Welcome Programme. We have funding available to provide classes.
