Dr Ashwiny O Kistnareddy has been awarded a John Fell Fund Main Award for her Newly-Arrived Children: EAL and other Provisions Project (NACEPP).

The UK has recently seen a sharp rise in the number of newly-arrived children being sent to new regions with no prior history of or limited arrivals of resettled or asylum-seeking children. This has led to increased demands for English as Additional Language (EAL) and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) support, along with wellbeing support given the circumstances in which many of these children have left their home countries and arrived in the UK.

Consequently, in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), Dr Kistnareddy’s project, NACEPP, seeks to explore the opportunity for remote access for these young people to support them in regions that are under-resourced and underfunded, and also in cases where the minors are waiting for long periods before being granted asylum. The John Fell Fund Main Award will enable the development, testing and maintenance of a remote access tool for newly-arrived young people in the UK.
