Natives of the World is our programme of work for adults from marginalised backgrounds. Through our activities can feel included and part of society. 

Our aim is for the adults we work with to access volunteering and creative activities to improve their wellbeing and increase employability skills so we build a more diverse workforce. We work with: 

  • Refugees

  • Asylum seekers

  • economically disadvantaged individuals

The adults we work with experience isolation, low self-esteem, long term health issues, emotional and mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress and depression.
