20 May Latest News from Welcome to the UK
On Saturday, Welcome to the UK had another successful beach clean in partnership with Southend Borough Council, we were joined by one of our new Ukrainian families also, we were very happy for them to come along. The children enjoyed the beautiful weather, happily competed to collect as much litter as possible and were rewarded with ice creams, thanks to our Trustee Elsa.
We think it is very important to contribute to our community and we strongly encourage our families and members to take part in these events as they are beneficial in many ways.
Our Ukrainian drop-in session is our main focus at the moment. On Tuesday this week, we had 40 individuals attending our drop-in session, with children. All had the opportunity to speak to a professional on a one-to-one support basis. We would like to invite everyone to keep coming every Tuesday from 10-12 and we will do our best to assist with their queries.
Our classes are now fully booked, with over 100 students attending every week. We have a long waiting list for ESOL, however we are always happy to see people at our Friendship Group on Fridays.
