At Heart and Parcel, we are committed to reflection and evaluation in order to improve our work with supporting people from migrant communities. Our work is continually informed, questioned and developed from all those involved, most importantly, our learners.

We do this by running our own evaluation from our sessions and private workshops, and attending conferences sharing the work that we do with other community groups, organisations, ELT practitioners and social entrepreneurs.
