Wisbech: Grant For Migrant Charity
A Wisbech charity, that helps migrants and their families adapt to life in the town, has been given almost £200,000.
The grant, totalling £199,995 was presented to The Rosmini Centre from the Big Lottery Fund's 'Reaching Communities' programme.
The charity, based in Queens Road in Wisbech, works with new arrivals and their families to ensure they settle into living in the town.
The funding will allow the charity, which currently relies heavily on around 130 volunteers, to employ a full-time worker.
The money will be spread over a five year period.
Anita Grodkiewicz, from the Rosmini Centre, said: "This funding is fantastic news.
We are a registered charity and so don't receive much funding from local authorities and have to do our own fundraising.
All of our staff do quite a lot of hours as volunteers, so this funding will allow us to have a dedicated person to oversee them and ensure that our services continue over the next five years.
The money will help make sure all of our volunteers receive the relevant training, and will enable us to continue to provide information, advice, guidance and support for the local communities.
It also means we can continue doing things like helping people arrange a hospital or doctor's appointment, help them with form filling and guide them through getting their children into education."
