English language training across London and the Midlands
Talking Together is TimeBank’s exciting volunteering project across London and the Midlands. It offers informal spoken language training and mentoring support to long-term UK residents who have little or no knowledge of English. Our practical input really can help transform someone's life, open doors and contribute to community integration.
Talking Together is one of six creative ideas to have won a share of £6m from the Department for Communities and Local Government to launch new projects to bring English language learning into the heart of the community.
We've had so much interest that we are not currently recruiting any more volunteer language trainers. But do watch this space for news of further Talking Together projects in the future.
We're delighted that our Talking Together project was awarded an Approved Provider Standard (APS), the national quality standard for mentoring and befriending projects.
