Learn English at Home is a charity with a 39-year history of supporting ethnically diverse adults to learn English, empowering clients to become active participants in their local communities.


We believe in an integrated society where language unlocks people’s potential to participate fully in family and community life.

Why are LEAH’s services so important?

Having limited English can impact access to vital services, including housing, education, healthcare and to find sustainable work. We enable clients to gain confidence, develop support networks, access services for themselves and their children and make their first steps towards college, volunteering and employment. Our work changes people's lives; empowering them to discover and take opportunities to actively integrate and participate in their local communities.




Through our volunteers, we provide the following services at no cost to the client:

 One to one English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL) tuition in the client’s home and currently remotely.

A range of small-group classes in community settings each focused on a specific learning need of the group (e.g. literacy, communication with the school).  These groups all have crèche facilities.

In work progression programme within businesses to support migrant workers 

Social integration community visits, e.g. heritage tours of Kingston, trips to Kew Gardens, local walks and outings.

Information about local statutory and voluntary services is embedded into all our teaching.
