All of our services and activities are free and draw on the skills, knowledge and passion of our visitors and volunteers. We are proud to be a member-led project, and welcome any ideas for activities and we’ll always support our visitors to pursue their interests!
Currently we provide:
Hot Nutritious Meal and Drinks
Many of the visitors to LWP come to have a hot meal and to socialize – or to share their traditional food and cook for everyone. We have built links with several market traders and independent shops who donate food to the project each week. A meal is cooked by one of our volunteers or visitors, and we have hot drinks on offer throughout the session.
English Conversation Classes
Our volunteers are always keen to chat, and each week there are opportunities for informal English conversation practice. We can also give one-to-one help with specific learning, such as writing a formal letter or putting together a CV. Let us know if you want to get involved when you visit our project.
We welcome families and provide a range of children’s activities, including colouring and indoor and outdoor games. Please note that children must be supervised by a parent or guardian.
Workshops and Skillsharing
We offer a range of ad hoc workshops, including sharing skills in photography, art and IT. We are also able to assist visitors with presenting their CVs and making job applications – and any other practical things we have knowledge of!
Visitors are welcome to borrow books from our library, which has a wide range of fiction and non-fiction. We also have a variety of board games and activities, and computers with internet access.
While we are not able to offer advice, we are always happy to signpost to other services, and have links with a number of organisations and agencies who can help with any issues.
You do not need a referral to join us, just come along on Sunday afternoon.
