Ripon Ray delivered a workshop on universal credit to ESOL students organised by English for Action.  It was wonderful to see more than 25 students  enjoyed learning about their rights in claiming benefits and, at the same time, develop English vocabulary.

He designed breakout activities for people to pool their knowledge and test their understanding. Students felt comfortable in asking their questions and were really happy to have attended. Looking forward to working
