‘I love watching the confidence of people grow, often within the first session as they relax and realise that the group is very supportive of each other.’

‘It’s given me reassurance that I can learn a new skill in retirement.’

Become a volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to develop your skills for work, meet new people and contribute to your local community.

It can also increase your self-esteem and confidence. Waltham Forest has volunteering opportunities for all abilities, ages and levels of commitment including English Conversation Club volunteers.

Volunteer to lead an English Conversation Club

Local volunteers lead our Conversation Clubs in the community. Our clubs have been hugely successful since we started in 2016.
