Refugee Drop In

The Refugee Drop In offers support, friendship, English language classes and a free lunch for refugees and asylum seekers.

We are open every Thursday from 10am-3pm in Hope House, Durham Road, Gateshead.

Support workers from Gateshead Council are available each week to help guests alongside team members from Alive Church.  The Refugee Drop In is a great place to get to know other people from different cultures and practice English language skills.

Each week there is:

  • Intermediate & Advanced English (ESOL) class at 1.30pm.
