The Refugee and Migrant Network Sutton offers advice and information on:
Benefits and Support
RMNS, in partnership with Sutton Counselling, offers free one-to-one counselling for refugees needing a confidential setting to help them recover from traumatic events. These will include the problems of loss and exile, and the experience of torture. The counsellors are trained in this area of work, and in working with interpreters.
English classes are held on Wednesday mornings during term time at the Drop-in. There is a registration fee of £10 per term and classes are taught by qualified volunteer ESOL teachers, assisted by numerous volunteers. Classes are on five levels and are based around themes that are relevant to everyday life and useful to clients. There is a free crèche for the care of young children, with qualified workers.
Monday Toddler Group:
This group meets in Trinity Hall on Monday mornings in term time from 9.30 until 10.45. It’s for parents with babies and toddlers who want to start to learn English with their children.
