Richmond EAL Friendship Group

Is a small charity targeting hard-to-reach and isolated adults, including parents of children in local schools, whose lack of English language skills disadvantages them in everyday life. Founded in 2001 the group now have approximately 850 individuals engaged. That is people speaking 63 different languages (and counting!). Many of these have been supported by this charity to access accredited learning at local collages and to find jobs and volunteering opportunities.

EAL’s approach challenges the traditional barriers of religion, language, ethnicity and economic status which prevents social integration. This has resulted in long term friendships and collaboration between individuals from different backgrounds.
