I guess that the biggest thing that stops many people from the EU fulfilling their potential in the UK, is not being able to speak English well enough. EU Welcome supports organisations like UK X-Change (02380 574718) and The Language Box (02380 682359) They can offer small group lessons at flexible times and for a reasonable cost. At the moment though EU Welcome in partnership with Southampton City Council can help you, or your friends enrol for some free lessons starting in September. People need to be 18 or over and be working. These courses will be for people of different levels, and will take place in Southampton. To register I need to fill in a short questionnaire with you. The first opportunity to do this will be at our next Advice Session this Friday. (For details of time and place see below) If you cannot attend this then e mail us with your name, or text 07786 392886 and I will arrange to see you at another time.
The next Advice Session that Anna and I are running will be on Friday 20 July (This Friday) from 6pm till 9pm at the YMCA building in Cranbury Place near the Inner Avenue.SO14 0LG We try to help over any problem and are happy to fill in forms for you. All services are FREE!, and you can register for free English lessons!
New Arts Project in Southampton Community Builders is a 3 year project funded by the National Lottery, aimed at helping people to set up arts and crafts based community groups, for ages 18-65, in and around Southampton As part of this, they'd like to see if they can set up an arts/crafts club for the Polish community in Southampton . The group could involve Music, Art, Carnivals, Drama, Photography, and Gallery Visits, Anything that helps bring people together and make good use of their leisure time without costing a lot of money If you’d be interested in getting involved, simply give your details to either the project manager Stuart Jebbitt on firstname.lastname@example.org or Dave Adcock email@example.com or 07786392886 , and once we have a few names we’ll have an informal get together to discuss our ideas.
