How can you still help the people Ukraine?
There are a number of ways that you can still support the Ukrainian people:
A page with useful links, information and guidance for UK hosts to supporting Ukrainians and for Ukrainians arriving in the UK has been set up.
See the page here: Support for Displaced Ukrainians
Our free English classes for displaced Ukrainians are now fully subscribed and we already have a long waiting list. We have no guarantees on how soon we can run additional classes or partner with other English language providers to accommodate more students. But if you would like to sign up to our waiting list to be contacted about any updates, you can do so here.
Join it here: English Lessons Waiting List
