Talk to your MP- Materials to support you to promote #LetRefugeesLearn

We have a new activism pack, with ideas, a template letter to MPs and MP Briefings, to help you ask your MP to Let Refugees Learn

Refugees and asylum seekers who have fled to the UK want to rebuild their lives in peace. But, although they have reached safety, many of them can’t begin their new lives – working, studying, contributing to their community – because they can’t speak the language.

There are a few simple changes that the government could make that would give refugees and asylum seekers the access they want and need to English language teaching.HPs_15

Refugee Action has teamed up with City of Sanctuary and Unison to ask our MPs to Let Refugees Learn. Throughout October and November, we’re asking you to get in touch with your MP – go and see them, invite them to an event, email or write – and outline why refugees should be given access to English language teaching. if you are an English language teacher, you can plan a lesson around writing letters and get your refugee students  to write to their MPS and share their experiences of trying to access affordable and accredited ESOL classes.   esol-1
