Befriending and English Conversation

Our Befriending and English Conversation sessions pair up volunteers with refugees for weekly, one-to-one sessions where they can have a friendly, relaxed chat and practise English conversation. One-to-One and refugees for informal, weekly English language sessions.

Our Befriending and Conversation Sessions help reduce loneliness and improve mental health, while helping the people taking part to build their confidence, employability, and encouraging integration.

Befrienders are matched with their Befriendees based on their availability and interests. We introduce them to eachother, and then between them they decide when to hold the classes, and what they want to cover in the ten week period.
