Birmingham City Council is accepting applications for grants to the value of £2,250 that will enable the receivers to deliver English language acquisition activities over a period of twelve months with refugees and migrants. The ‘Share my Language’ project is a MiFriendly Cities initiative – MiFriendly Cities is an EU funded project that aims to make cities in the Midlands region, including Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton, welcoming destinations for migrants that support them in becoming engaged citizens.

Acquiring English language skills is necessary to help refugees and migrants settle into society and rebuild their lives with hope and purpose. Language learning activities must be fun, interesting, social and useful and can either be incorporated in existing provision or established as something new.

 

There will be two funding rounds, with the first ending on 30 September 2019 and the second on 31 October 2019. For further information, appliucatns should contact Julie-Anne Wright at Julie-anne.wright@birmingham.gov.uk or call 07892786727.
