Dear Gill/colleagues

There are some free to download resources on staying safe designed for 
women ESOL learners on the Learning Unlimited website which may be of 
interest: ‘Staying safe at home’ and ‘Staying safe outside the home’. 
These units were developed with Greenwich Community College as part of 
the ‘Teaching and Learning English’ project and domestic violence is 
included as a topic:
http://www.learningunlimited.co/files/TALE_StayingSafehome.pdf
http://www.learningunlimited.co/files/TALE_StayingSafeoutside.pdf

(Teaching and Learning English was a pre-departure European Integration 
Fund (EIF) project which Learning Unlimited ran in partnership with 
UKBET in Bangladesh, St Giles Educational Trust and Greenwich Community 
College).

The audio files for these two units, as well as several other free 
toolkits such as ‘Welcome to the UK’ and ‘Preparing for life in the UK’, 
  are also in the Free resources section of our website: 
http://www.learningunlimited.co/publications/free-resources

Violence towards women/attempted rape are covered in ‘Too much crime’ 
(Entry 1)/‘Violent Crime’(Entry 2+) in our ‘Literacy for Active 
citizenship’ graded ESOL readers 
http://www.learningunlimited.co/publications/esolreaders . These readers 
are based on stories written by ESOL learners and project volunteers and 
we are planning to include more topics on women’s issues in future 
readers.

Kind regards

Karen
