Our Centre Director

Dorota's unique connections within the community and her ability to speak several languages have allowed her to work collaboratively with many other agencies - council, schools, NHS, police - to provide appropriate support to some of the most vulnerable in society. Dorota is supported by a number of trustees and volunteers, including a number of language coaches who are almost all qualified teachers. There are also several volunteers from the new communities who have benefited from the centre's services and now seek to provide support to others.
