The organisation aims to provide mental health, social, educational and advocacy services to Polish community in the United Kingdom.
Polish Family Support Centre is a voluntary organisation established in 2009. We are a growing charity focusing on providing support to the Polish minority in Scotland. We offer comprehensive support for disadvantaged people through offering professional counselling, psychological and advocacy services, principally targeting the difficulties Polish face after leaving their native country.
PFSC aims to provide the best quality of services for Polish community residing in Scotland. This is why we have a team of professionals, qualified in their fields of practice and committed volunteers that provide help, support and advocacy for Polish minority in Scotland, particularly in Edinburgh.
PFSC put emphasis on four core aspects of its practice:
Mental wellbeing: psychological individual and group sessions, workshops and support groups Education: educate adults on their rights and improve their language skills. Moreover, we support children to adapt to the new culture and environment. Advocacy: we take action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need Integration: we organise many events throughout the year for the Polish families in Scotland such as: Children’s Day, Christmas Day, support groups and workshops Translations: we provide translation services for individuals and organisations
