Charity number


The Furnival charity is located on Verdon Street in the heart of Burngreave.

We work with families in the local area and beyond to support their needs.

Our Creative English project reaches many migrant and newly-arrived families, as we work with women to equip them with the languge they need to navigate daily life. We attract new learners each week as word spreads in the community. Creative English is a fun, drama-based method of language learning at the heart of which is a warm welcome to help families feel they belong.

This work has extended to family learning and activities, together with the provision of a hot meal, during the school holidays; a toy library to encourage learning and a regular playgroup for pre-school children.

During 2020 we have sought to reach out to families during the Covid-19 pandemic, supporting them through Zoom English and Family Learning sessions. We have provided craft and educational resources to enourage learning during lockdown and run a Summer Book Club.
