We hold regular football-only sessions as well as ESOL and football combined. Our ESOL and football sessions consist of learning basic level 1 in ESOL and football sessions at BHASVIC, a college of sanctuary in Brighton.
Who’s it for?
We work with asylum seekers and refugees from a range of countries, all fleeing awful situations including war and persecution. Some are staying in temporary accommodation and are waiting to be housed, some are already living in safe places. Our sessions provide relief from their trauma, as well as a connection through social integration. We work with a variety of refugee services to build a safe and inclusive space to play and talk football.
