We have established a very positive working relationship with the partnership and housing strategy officer from Tameside Council. This means that we can attend home visits to newly arrived refugees and offer their children the opportunity to play at the Tameside Stadium each week and immediately meet new people and make new friends. We also offer volunteering opportunities to the parents and this is something we hope will continue to develop as we already have 4 children playing here each week from these visits.
ESOL/Tameside College – we have worked with 11 asylum seekers who have recently arrived in Tameside to assist them in enrolling at Tameside College to study English. All 11 are currently studying ESOL.
