Classes cater to varied levels of English and 121 sessions are available for those who cannot make regular classes due to work and/or college commitments. A mathematician volunteer also runs 121 Maths classes, which can vary from everyday Maths to A level. 

Sharing Our World

At The Harbour Project, we strive to reduce social isolation, improve health and increase self-esteem. We run weekly cooking, sewing, art classes and a women’s group. These activities allow a safe space for asylum seekers and refugees to share their culture with likeminded people from around the world.

Steps2Work Harbour

An initiative to help asylum seekers and refugees learn about the UK work culture including; looking for a job, job requirements, creating a CV, preparing for an interview, punctuality, dress code and hygiene, work do’s and don’ts and finally mock interview session where they interviewed and given feedback from employers. Attendees of the course fed back that rather than nervous and unsure they now feel empowered, confident and prepared! ‘My first experience of facing UK work culture, I now feel more confident with real practice!’
