Groups and Classes


Our group sessions and classes take place at the Woodlawns Centre (next to the SLRA office). All activities are free and welcome migrants including asylum seekers and refugees in South London. Priority is given to active SLRA users and sessions can be busy to we can’t always invite everyone who would like to come.
