CLSS promotes inclusion and integration of communities reduces poverty & improves access to services
Community Language Support Services (CLSS) is a registered charity with aims to assist speakers of diverse languages with limited English speaking skills to be able to communicate with local organisations and people. We mainly work with ethnic minority groups and asylum seekers who face difficulties communicating due to language barriers and lack of information.Our aim is to empower our clients who feel isolated from the community and to help promote their integration into British society.Why the community needs us
Our service provides professional, confidential and culturally sensitive support services to its community members. It helps those most hard to reach disadvantaged individuals. It also becomes the voice of the disadvantaged to respond to the unmet needs of the community. It aims that every individual has the opportunity to get the right support and enjoy a good quality life.Our impact on the community
CLSS services combat isolation, strengthens confidence of users as well as tackling poverty through aiding and improving access to mainstream services. Through offering volunteer opportunities individuals develop skills and confidence which helps them become independent.
Volunteers are required to offer mentoring support, one to one support and English conversation practice for isolated and disadvantaged adults from refugee communities.
