Story

Give the gift of welcome, friendship and belonging this Christmas

Buy English lessons for an asylum seeker or refugee

£20 would pay for a week of English classes and support for a student, setting them on their journey to belonging here in Norwich - making friends, feeling at home and able to contribute to our community.

Donating with give.net is really easy and completely secure. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. Thank you so much for making a difference to newcomers to Norwich this Christmas.



English +

We are so grateful for the generous donations of individual supporters that enable us to continue and grow the work of English+ in supporting and reaching out to new communities in Norwich.

Our English classes, conversation classes and short courses help people to gain the skills and confidence they need to rebuild their lives here.

This is the difference your donation could make:

 - £10 could pay for a week’s bus tickets so an asylum seeker can come to our classes

 - £50 could pay for half a term’s English language tuition for a student

 - £100 could pay for a student to attend a 7-week short course, such as a Level 1 Food Hygiene Certificate

We are a Christian charity that supports new communities in Norwich to learn English,  form friendships and to make this city a home. We welcome anyone who finds themselves isolated by lack of English language including refugees and asylum seekers; beginners and advanced; young and old; all faiths and none.
