What We Do

The Learning Station Project is a charity dedicated to supporting refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in London to acquire the knowledge, confidence and English skills they need.

 

We believe that every refugee, asylum seeker and migrant in London should fulfill their potential and integrate into their new city through free, accessible English classes. 

Through our programme of English classes, cultural outings and sports activities, we aim to create a welcoming and trustworthy environment, where people from all backgrounds, regardless of their immigrant status, can grow. Our programme offers a platform for students to advance the language skills they need to develop, on both a personal and professional level.

We also aim to raise awareness of the experiences of new asylum-seekers, migrants and refugees living in London and inspire empathy and action from Londoners to support their cause.

 

Our Programme

Our program provides a platform for our students to learn, exchange and come together to find the support they need.

The Learning Station Project plays a role in ensuring that London remains an international city, promoting inclusivity, solidarity and social cohesion by fostering a sense of community for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.

Funding from the UK Government for the provision of English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) fell by 56% between 2009-2017, which has curtailed the ability of public services to support the integration of migrants, such as refugees and asylum-seekers.

Asylum seekers are not allowed to claim benefits or work in the UK. If they are destitute and have no other means of supporting themselves, they can apply to receive asylum support. This is set at around £5.39 per day.
