Working with a team of Volunteers we provide a Community Learning Programme to help people with basic skills to increase social inclusion and active citizenship, as well as promote lifelong learning.

At CHAS @ St Vincent's we provide a range of free classes to help with Literacy, IT Skills and Employment in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, as well as a weekly Migrant Support Drop-In and Work Club.
