Build Confidence

We aim to build the confidence of newly arrived migrants, helping them to stand on their own feet and participate in UK society.

Join Together

This support has enabled some to join with other members of their community to form their own organisations.

Powerful Performance

One of our priorities is encouraging their engagement with the long established host communities, the majority of whom are of Irish, Caribbean and South Asian heritage.

Established in 2007

Our association was formed in 2007 and achieved charity status in 2009. We work from premises in the heart of the area, providing services direct to the public irrespective of whether they are newly arrived in the UK or members of the longer established host communities.

40 Languages & Dialects

40 languages and dialects are spoken by the communities we currently work with. This has enabled us to deliver outreach services with the aid of volunteers in community specific languages in schools, at the local Community Fire Station and at a local Asian Women's Centre.

Various services

We offer benefits, employment, housing and debt advice on a drop in basis. Immigration Advice is available on site on a sessional basis. A new series of Personal money management for newcomers is planned for 2016/17.
