Services
Mother and Toddler Group for Asylum Seekers and Refugees

 

This project consists of organising a weekly group for asylum seeker and refugee mothers and their under 5’s. It is held at The Hyde Childern's Centre once a week for 2 hours and it provides them with a supportive learning environment.

The mums learn English through reading, singing, activity, craft and free play sessions with their babies and toddlers. A separate ESOL lesson whilst the children are given a snack and entertained by volunteers is included.

The group’s focus  will be on educating the mums on areas such as learning through play, accessing library services, reading bed time stories, singing nursery rhymes in English, healthy eating for toddlers, dental hygiene, applying for nursery places etc.

External guests include a child nutritionalist whose 5 week programme would be of enormous benefit to the group.

 

The group runs on Tuesdays 10:00am -12:00pm (during term time only)

Venue: The Hyde Children's Centre, Hyde Crescent, NW9 7EY

Legal Advice Surgeries

Following consultations with our clients we identified a pressing need for access to timely legal advice and representation for asylum, immigration and housing related matters.

To address this we have developed strong links with local legal advice providers. We have set up an immigration and housing advice surgery in partnership with Ata & Co Solicitor and Protection of Human Rights in Public Law respectively.

The immigration and housing advice surgery is held every other Wednesday.

ESOL Classes
BRS ESOL classes began in January 2008 with two levels: absolute beginners and beginners plus.
 
Our students have told us that our warm and friendly classes have become an important social link in their lives because they have a good social element to them in addition to learning English.   Our syllabus included practical lessons on health matters to enable the students to make medical appointments, explain dietary and medical needs and to know which emergency service to call in case of need.

A Message From Our Patron


Last year I visited the Barnet Refugee Service, and met the trustees, the staff and some of the volunteers and clients.  I was moved and impressed by the real difference BRS has made to so many lives.
