Volunteer ESOL 1-1: Help with English is just one way to get involved

Do you have skills in ESOL or would you like to develop your understanding of ‘the refugee crisis’ beyond the tabloid headlines?

‘Skem International’ a group of refugees and community members from Skelmersdale, run two weekly events which are looking for more volunteers.

Every Wednesday and Friday, volunteers and refugees meet up. On Wednesday from 4-6, there’s a chance to play badminton, table tennis and other games in the Ecumenical centre. On Friday from 2.30, there is a drop in based in Skelmersdale Library where everyone is welcome to have a cup of tea and talk about their week. Boardgames and books are also available, and this is a great chance for individuals to ask for help with a complicated form, or to pick up a 1-1 English language coaching session.

Volunteers are very welcome – please come along any Friday. There’s no need to register or book, and there’s no commitment required.
