We have a number of new projects coming up which you'll be able to refer your clients to.


Building Better Opportunities

The Building Better Opportunities (BBO) projects launched on 7th March 2017 at The South Hill Centre in Hemel Hempstead.

The projects aim to help people overcome learning and employment barriers.

Guest Speakers included The Big Lottery’s Amanda Form and James Dove, Norman Jennings of Hertfordshire LEP and Iain Macbeath, Director of Health and Community Services for Hertfordshire County Council.

We would like to thank everyone for making this a successful event.

The Active Citizenship Programme

We've chosen to take part in this programme supporting EU citizens to feel part of their communities.

The programme will focus on combatting discrimination, violence, and will support EU citizens in taking part in civic life, such as voting in local and EU elections.

The fundamental principles of this Programme are that all of us in Europe need to feel at ease when we live or travel in a Member State other than our own, and that we should be able to rely on access to justice throughout the EU.

We plan to integrate this project into our ongoing course delivery.

Contact us if you have any individuals who may benefit from this course or see our information document.


Syrian Refugee Project

We are supporting the resettlement of Syrian refugees into the UK by providing intensive English classes to support their integration and understanding of life in Hertfordshire.

Classes will be available throughout Hertfordshire. Contact us for further information.

Mental Health Project

We are part of an exciting project for the Department of Education exploring whether adult community learning courses help people to develop strategies to manage mild to moderate mental health issues including stress, worry and anxiety.

Courses are 15 hours of learning delivered over 5 weeks with top up courses every 6 weeks to maintain support

Learners self-assess using Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale at the start, middle and end of their course.

Last year, HAFLS and our providers worked with 495 learners on this project, 290 with mental health issues and 205 without. 

We're pleased to be a part of this project again in 2016/17.
