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.
We have a full programme of summer fun for the children & young people from our homework club and our mentoring scheme, but we’re looking for some extra hands to make it all happen. From rock-climbing to camping, we have a great range of one-off volunteer opportunities — all we need from you is some time and energy!
Activities we’re looking for more volunteers for include:
15TH JULY – Alice in Wonderland Opera , Holland Park, roughly, 10am – 3/4pm.
Help take our junior club to the opera in Holland Park.
24th JULY – Family beach trip, Brighton, roughly 10am – 6pm.
Join us on our yearly family trip too the seaside.

All you need is free time, energy and a smile. DBS will be provided and expenses can be covered. Please contact Molly@love-to-learn.org.uk if you would like to help us this summer!
