In Feburary 2020, Refugee Action commissioned Heart & Parcel to run a bespoke 4-week ESOL cooking project for their female clients from the Gateway Resettlement Programme. The clients were already taking formal ESOL classes outside of the project, so the objective of this particular project was to help clients practise applying English language in a practical and informal environment.
As a result of the evaluation from the previous project with Refugee Action, the decision was made to work with a group of women from one location in
Manchester, with the aim of removing any potential barriers in travelling to
attend the sessions.
