We make a positive impact on children that experience a range of barriers including integration, access to academic support, language, and isolation away from friends of the same communities. All sessions are optional and present the opportunities for children who wish to get involved!
The Homework Club is a weekly drop-in session supporting children from Year 1 to Year 7 with English and Maths. The club offers a safe and supportive environment for children to have fun, develop their skills, and make friends. Social activities like active games and quizzes are co-run by our team of dedicated volunteers.
Our Homework Club takes place at the centre every Tuesday and Thursday from 4.30 to 6.30 pm (term time only).
We work closely with students, schools and parents from households that experience numerous barriers including language and integration. If possible, we request that each child has their school teacher fill out the referral form so our tutors can offer tailor-made support.
“First of all I want to say a huge thanks for your hard work in supporting my children as they develop their skill and knowledge. I really appreciate you. It is helpful. It has been a great experience which can help my children to revise their lessons properly. They honestly would have never passed their exam if it was not your help! Your teaching methods are great, very clear and concise. You don’t waste hours explaining meaningless background. Your manner of teaching is also wonderful and refreshing. You are patient and supportive and really know how to motivate your students and great at building confidence and keeping lessons fun and engaging through a variety of activities that improve conversation, writing and reading. Keep doing the good things. We are glad to have you beside us!”
LRF Youth Group offers free one to one academic support for Year 8 to A level students. The group includes sports and recreational activities which are co-run by our dedicated and diverse volunteers who come from both professional and student backgrounds.
This group session takes place every Saturday (term time only) from 10 am to 12 pm. Additionally, one to one support via Zoom can be pre-arranged Monday-Friday (after school).
Many of the young members we work with have arrived in the UK and seek to develop their English language and communication skills. Youth from these under- represented communities require extra academic support, educational and recreational activities to build their social skills, make friends and enjoy group sports. LRF Youth Club therefore creates opportunities for youth to develop confidence and skills to benefit themselves and their communities.
“It’s very good, my children are happy. The tutors helped my kids a lot. It is good for me as a mother because every week I have some time when my son and daughter are doing English and Homework club.”
