The East of England Polish Community Organisation
The East of England Polish Community Organisation is a voluntary group that provides information and support to the Polish community in Cambridge and the surrounding areas.
Other topics are discussed in specific workshops on an ad-hoc basis.
The organisation also promotes Polish culture at multi-cultural events organised by the voluntary-sector and/or local authorities. The group maintained a Polish stall on 19th October at Cambridge City Council’s Black History Month, and at a multi-cultural event in Huntingdon organised by Cambridgeshire Minority Ethnic Employees Network.
In an effort to support Polish parents, the group is establishing the Polish Parents Forum (PPF) in Cambridge, aimed at improving communication between schools and parents, and disseminating information about access to parenting/educational services amongst Polish families. The PPF in Cambridge will be a pilot project, which will then be rolled out in other towns in Cambridgeshire such as Huntingdon, Wisbech and Ely. The group will also develop a parenting programme to support Polish parents and their children.
In order to improve the level of English spoken among Polish migrants, the group also intends to set up an English Speaking Club.
