LEAH works with vulnerable ethnic minority adults who are isolated because of their low levels of English. LEAH trains and supports local volunteers to offer 1:1 home-based support and small group classes to people who would otherwise be excluded from ESOL lessons. LEAH’s work changes people’s lives, reducing isolation, increasing confidence and enabling access to mainstream services.
What the grant is for:
The Love Kingston Grant is going towards enriching the existing offer to clients through a programme of social activities including ‘stay and play’, local walks and visits to heritage sites, using a newly established Experienced Volunteer Group.
"LEAH’s work is at the heart of the community and so we are thrilled to enrich our offer with the support of Love Kingston."
