This Christmas, Action Foundation is asking its supporters to give refugees a very special and lasting present – the Gift of Words.
Imagine arriving in a new country without being able to speak or understand the language. Imagine how difficult doing even the most basic things would be – for example, getting on a bus, making a doctor’s appointment, shopping for food or speaking to your child’s teacher. This is the reality for many of the people who attend our free English classes provided by our wonderful volunteer teachers.
And this is why we are launching our Gift of Words Appeal, to raise much-needed funds for our Action Language projects based in Newcastle and Sunderland.
Our team of dedicated volunteers work with more than 200 students a week, giving them the right words and confidence to navigate life here in the North East.
