BE YOURSELF - STAY UNITED
Russian speaking community - West Midlands (Great Britain)
Our organisation has been established to support children and their families from Eastern Europe, to adapt and assimilate themselves into living in the UK and to promote social cohesion, health and wellbeing.
We do this by providing community and social activities, networking opportunities with those in a similar position and signposting to other support services they are able to access.
We deliver various sessions and looking at how families can integrate themselves into the British culture while preserving their ethnic traditions.
We believe that integration not happening just through learning the language but through understanding the values, culture and taking part in activities within the community.
All our project seeks to bring socially isolated and lonely members of our diverse community together to participate in services we are offering.
