We support the integration

Many North Koreans arrive in their new homes needing support to intergrate and build new lives. Through English classes, study support, and mental health care, we support North Koreans to realise their goals.

ENGLISH PROGRAMME

Our language programme addresses the language barriers faced by North Koreans in the UK supports new social skills to trigger change for a successful intergration into UK society through 3 steps:

01. Twice-weekly English classes focused on the practical language North Koreans feel they need to prosper in the UK.

02. Weekly meetings with volunteer tutors guided by the needs of the refugees to enable them to practice their new- found skills in practical real-world settings as well as addressing other skills needed by North Korean refugees.

03. Every month, we help cultivate friendshops as language practice for our students through meet-ups, trips to museums, cafes, and parks not only help refugees develop friendships for their social integration but also provide an outlet for their English-language learning.

STUDY SUPPORT

We work with volunteer tutors to provide homework and help the next generation or North Korean. Daily drop-in sessions allow young North Koreans to access support for completing and topping up school work.

MENTAL HEALTH CARE

Working alongside a dedicated team of volunteer Korean- speaking mental health professionals, we seek to empower North Koreans to overcome the psychlogical barriers to integration in the UK.
