Signposting to essential services (English language classes, Job Services, GP registration, College and University education)
Informal help with form filling and setting up online accounts (document applications like passport, driving licence, bus passes, and more)
One-on-one consultations with Citizens Advice on benefits (Tuesdays 2-4pm) to include Universal Credit, Personal Independence Payment (PIP), child benefit etc.
Drop in consultations to address various concerns: setting up bank accounts, obtaining BRP, registering for schools and more
translation & interpretation
Depending on the contract, we provide both translation and interpretation services
Provision of Vodafone SIM cards for mobile phones and onboarding to digital platforms for Ukrainian community in Devon via WhatsApp, Mighty Networks and Facebook groups
Thank you so much for your care and support. We would feel very isolated and alone without a vital contact with other Ukrainian people in Devon!
