The coronavirus pandemic has challenged everyone to stay safe by isolating and maintaining a social distance of 2m.  However, the English for Women community hasn’t let this keep them apart and so we would like to say a huge thank you to all our learners, volunteers and supporters who have continued to keep the English for Women community a vibrant and supportive place to be during the most challenging of circumstances.

Due to government advice concerning COVID-19 all face-to-face English for Women sessions are currently closed.  This includes EfW Chelmsford, EfW Harwich, EfW Goodmayes and EfA Chelmsford.  We continue to follow government advice and will open as soon as it is possible to do so.  The safety and well-being of everyone in the English for Women community will remain at the forefront of this decision.  All updates will be posted here and on our Facebook and twitter pages.

However, we continue to provide support by offering:

  • Online sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10.30am for all learners and volunteers (access via our closed Facebook group or contact;
  • Information, advice, lockdown activity suggestions and community support through our Facebook page, closed Facebook page and twitter feed;
  • Phone, online and practical support (and/or signposting where applicable) to provide additional contact, check-ins and friendly support.
