With the help of one or two guest speakers, we will facilitate a conversation on a topic of interest to you, before opening the floor for each of you to share any stories, best-practices, or challenges you’ve faced. It’s an opportunity for each of you to share what you’ve learnt with others, and to glean wisdom and ideas from each other as you learn about what other members around the country are up to.
You’re likely facing many of the same challenges; why not see if anyone else has a solution!
Over the last two years nearly 200,000 people have made use of the British National (Overseas) visa scheme to come to the UK from Hong Kong to live and work.
FaithAction have been supporting these new arrivals in 3 regions of the country, London, the West Midlands and Yorkshire and the Humber, through our Café Connect programme. Café Connect welcomes new arrivals to the UK into the local area by meeting their need for conversational English language practice, opportunities to find out about local facilities and services, cultural orientation and opportunities to make friends with both other new arrivals and members of the host community.
We’ve been busy gathering data on the impact of the programme. Join us to hear more about the programme and it’s impact.
Join us at the next Coffee House!
