Upbeat Communities: Welcoming newcomers – Building Understanding
Upbeat is a charity which exists to help vulnerable refugees and migrants settle and begin to thrive in a new community. We educate and mobilise the settled community to welcome and support people to rebuild their lives.
We have a vision to see community built between people of different cultures, with everyone able to grow and make a contribution.
Our work involves three key areas:
Welcome – Orientation and building community
Empowerment – Skills training and support
Education – Build understanding in the wider community
