Information on going to English classes for BN(O)s – Although generally BN(O) visa holders cannot access free English classes or other courses funded through the Adult Education Budget (AEB) for the first three years of their residence in the UK, many local authorities in Yorkshire and Humber are allowing Hong Kongers to join English classes run by their adult education teams. We are gathering information about which authorities are allowing this but in the meantime you can contact the Hong Kong hub to find out.
Also, there are many other kinds of English classes open to Hong Kongers which are available in the community sector. To locate these classes, search for classes near to you using the postcode search and then contact specific groups to find out if Hong Kongers can join.
West Yorkshire Police have produced a Hate Crime Awareness Form in traditional Chinese. There is also a third party reporting service for Hong Kongers and other East and South East Asian Communities – On your side
