About us

English for Women is an exciting and vibrant project that makes a real difference to women in our communities who encounter language barriers in their everyday lives.

It was started in 2015 by Heike Prentice with just three Afghan families, and has now grown to support women from over 30 nationalities.

English for Women’s aim is to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for women who speak little or no English, where they can improve their communication skills, make friends, learn about British culture, integrate into their local communities and feel less isolated.

English for Women provides a safe and welcoming environment for all women regardless of language, culture, religion or nationality.
