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
