Welcome To London Speech Workshop’s Giving Page
We are looking for social enterprises or charities doing amazing work within the UK with disadvantaged groups. This consists of groups such as refugee communities, young LGBTQ+ individuals, youth at risk and homeless individuals. The aim of this initiative is to run 1 to 3 hour workshops that will benefit these groups by supporting them with communication skills.
We have four workshops that we are offering for these groups, they are:
Youth at risk & LGBTQ+ individuals
Youth into Employment
This is a 3 hour workshop that supports young people getting into employment with the focus on people putting their best foot forward in an interview situation. The workshop will go from the basics of what to wear, how to shake hands through to the more subtle skills such as, how to talk about their history and their story in a way that makes a positive impression and represents who they are.
Clarity & Confidence Workshop
This workshop will be based around anything from basic phrases in English through to how to make sure you can be more easily understood. It will also incorporate some techniques for improving confidence in your body language, voice and how you represent yourself. Particularly useful for individuals who are having to negotiate a British system and struggling with confidence and being misunderstood.
Self Advocacy & Storytelling
We are aware that some people with a more advanced use of English may be trying to open doors or want to tell people of their experiences. The idea of this workshop is to support them with skills to tell their story, inspire others, share their journey and make a change in their community.
We are aware of the challenges that homeless people face with the many interviews that have to be held to get off the streets and into residency. This workshop will focus on how to do your best in the interviews and the basics of rapport building.
If any of these workshops, if you feel your cohort or the people you work with would massively benefit from any of these workshops then please apply below. Filling In the contact form with details.
Following the workshop, there will be an opportunity to partner with us for the long term if we see there are real benefits to the work we’ve done with you. Our goal is to make sure that we are supporting people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to access our services so that we can support them to live better lives.
If you feel that your cohort or the people you work with could massively benefit from a workshop like this but the topics you would like to work on are not covered by the four workshops above, then please feel free to detail this in the application form. Please tell us what you think they need and we will definitely consider creating a bespoke workshop for you.
