Our Funders

Our projects are linked to our charitable objective of promoting intercultural integration and overcoming problems which lead to social marginalisation. We do this by providing support and services to create equality of opportunity and engender respect for all.

Our team works in partnership with Somerset’s voluntary and statutory sectors to achieve our goals, which helps us learn, strengthen our delivery and avoid service duplication. We are grateful for the co-operation we receive from our friends in these sectors.

Our funding comes from charitable trusts, businesses and statutory bodies, but we don’t receive core statutory funding.

We’re grateful to all who share our understanding of the needs of migrants and other minority cultural communities in Somerset, and make our work possible.

If you’re a funder interested in supporting our work, we’d be delighted to have a chat about our work, and this year’s goals. Thanks for your interest in what we do.

Our English Club is a fantastic community resource where hundreds of people have found out about UK culture, learned English and found new friendships. We also run a busy social media group for learners, with daily chat and tips. Our social learning platform and weekly lessons in Facebook Rooms add flexibility to this offering. This year over 60 people have registered for f2f classes, and 150 are in our social media learner group. This funds a fantastic resource for Sedgemoor communities.

Challenging assumptions, supporting our t&i work

Across Somerset

We were super excited to receive funding from Charlie, who understands the reasons that people migrate, and the challenges they face. Our new project seeks to help overcome some of the stereotypes and assumptions people have about migrants, supports those who make Somerset home in the long term, and to promote intercultural understanding. Charlie’s funding came at a crucial time for our charity, and we can honestly say that we wouldn’t be where we are now without it. The fund also supports one of our community workers, who has made a real difference to clients.

Within the HPC Impact area – see us in the news

This funding has been invaluable in helping us reach our charitable objectives. This year we’ve run neighbourhood and workplace training for over 50 people, attended or delivered 6 events and provided first-language welfare and immigration help to hundreds of individuals and organisations. 

CHARIS refugees alongside Somerset Council set up Welcome Hubs, these are for Refugees, Asylum seekers & their sponsors across Somerset. Diversity Voice manages the Sedgemoor Welcome Hubs. 

The aim of the Welcome Hubs is to provide support for displaced people to integrate into the community. As well as this we are able to provide advice on local services, and build relationships. 

Across Somerset

We are part of an alliance of mental health organisations who have come together to provide 24/7 support to adults in Somerset. Our shared ambition is to ensure that people living with mental health problems get the right support at the right time. Working together, we support people to live a full life, by enabling access to specialist mental health services, housing support, debt and employment advice, volunteering opportunities, peer support, community activities and physical exercise, to help support and improve their wellbeing and quality of life. We are funded for strategic capacity to engage in development work and alliance building activities, attendance at all partnership meetings and recognised as the specialist lead on the inclusion of speakers of other languages and those from non-UK cultural backgrounds.
