Love to Learn has been working with children and young people from refugee backgrounds and their families and carers since 2004.
We provide a range of services for 200+ children, young people and their families including befriending and mentoring support, advocacy and casework, a homework club and trips and activities.
We are working towards a future in which all young people fulfil their educational potential and do well, feel confident and enjoy learning.
How to volunteer
Volunteering with Love to Learn is really rewarding. We provide training, support and a DBS check and we ask that you commit to volunteering for at least 6 months (but most people stay much longer!)
Learning Mentors work with a young person once a week, supporting them with homework and developing study skills. Learning mentors can choose subjects they feel most confident in and the time they are able to make – usually after work. You don’t need teaching experience, our volunteers come from all walks of life. If you’d like to hear from our mentors, you can watch this video.
Homework club is at Katherine Low Settlement, 108 Battersea High St on Wednesday evening for seniors and Thursday evening for juniors. We have an hour of homework help and then an hour of activities. We provide training and support – and a fun team to work with.
Volunteers work under the supervision of the caseworker to assist with practical support to families. The role can include accompanying families to visit schools, or to access local services such as the CAB or help with filling in application forms for schools or additional services.
