Piers Road New Communities Centre Association
Piers Road serves refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable communities. Their mission is to relieve suffering, loneliness, distress, educational disadvantage and other life challenging issues.
The Association works with 23 different refugee community groups based in the building. They all have access to the building seven days a week with its office space and IT facilities The present groups are from many African countries plus more established groups from Kurdistan, Iran and Afghanistan. The groups provide support to their own members both on and off site. Their activities include family support and community and other social events.
On site the association provides courses on ESOL, diet and other health issues, job search, literacy and benefits. Some of our partners put on their own courses for refugees in our catchment area, for example, African men’s health issues.
The Association hopes to provide courses on Personal Money Management this autumn.
