LOVE TO LEARN works with young people from new communities and their families to increase opportunities and rights to learning; confidence; wellbeing and aspiration.

We have been working  with refugee communities in and around Wandsworth since 2004, when the project was set up by the Katherine Low Settlement. Today we provide a range of services for 200+ children, young people and their families including befriending and mentoring support, advocacy and casework, a homework club, trips and activities.

 

Keith & Shabir do the Battersea Park Run

Report by one of our lovely volunteer learning mentors, Keith

On a wonderful spring Saturday morning in Battersea Park mentee, Shabir and I joined a crowd in bright sports gear (and a dog which came dressed just as itself) to warm up for a 5K run. We had arranged to meet at the tube at 8 00 AM to travel together but Shabir was there at 7 30. So keen! We had decided in the depth of winter that Love to Learn was such a fantastic organisation it would be good (when it got a bit warmer) to raise some money to support the great work and to get a bit fitter at the same time. It was huge fun and made even better as Sophie came to support and take photos of us with medals and flapjack. So far we have raise £150, and its still coming in!
