Imagine being forced to leave your home to live in a foreign country with a completely different language and culture. You have lost contact with your friends and family; you feel very alone. You need help to rebuild your life but you can't read, write or speak English and it feels almost impossible. You recieve barely enough money to support yourself, and paying for English tuition or even transport to free services is not an option. N.E.S.T Beyond Barriers aims to be the support network which holds the hand of that refugee as they transition into their new environment.
Beyond Barriers is an online platform where refugees and asylum seekers from all over the world will be able to access free English language support. Beyond Barriers takes the work of N.E.S.T and delivers it in small, entertaining and informative videos which learners can access from their own homes, reducing all costs, so that learning English is accessible to all.
As well as language support Beyond Barriers will help to inform learners about British life and the local area, featuring everything from how to use the bus transport system to how to book a doctors appointment. This service is absolutely vital in providing a community for refugees and asylum seekers, allowing them to feel a sense of solidarity in our society.
