We have made a grant of £59,161 (over three years) to the Streatham Drop-in Centre for Refugees. The award funds a Family Learning Project which gives homework support with literacy and numeracy for primary school age children plus advice, advocacy and training on UK education for their parents. The project will include homework support delivered by a qualified teacher on Saturdays and workshops for parents on the education system and how best to support their children within it. The Family Learning Worker will also provide advice to individual families including the provision of advocacy with schools and other agencies.

We especially welcome comments from grantees telling us how the project is going
