Service summary

The Harbour Project drop in is currently running by appointments, this is open from 10am-2pm (Monday-Friday). We are able to provide help and advice to asylum seekers and refugees.

We run weekday English classes taught by a pool of qualified English tutors. Classes cater to varied levels of English and 121 sessions are available for those who cannot make regular classes due to work and/or college commitments. A mathematician volunteer also runs 121 Maths classes.

At The Harbour Project, we strive to reduce social isolation, improve health and increase self-esteem. We run a weekly women’s group and Harbour Café. These activities allow a safe space for asylum seekers and refugees to share their culture with likeminded people from around the world.

The Steps 2 work initiative helps asylum seekers and refugees learn about the UK work culture including; looking for a job, job requirements, creating a CV, preparing for an interview, punctuality, dress code and hygiene, work do’s and don’ts.

Many of our visitors experience mental health issues that result from their experiences. To provide some support we offer ‘Free from Bad Memories’ free 121 counselling sessions.
