Barka UK was established in June 2007. It is affiliated to the Barka Foundation for Mutual Help, which for over thirty years has been working in Poland with excluded and vulnerable members of community.
Among its many projects, Barka Poland has developed vocational schools for the unemployed, numerous social enterprises and a program of accessible housing and self-sufficient communities in the countryside.
Barka UK is committed to assisting homeless people in our community. Our mission is to empower severely excluded people to regain their independence and dignity by social integration.
We also offer support for their personal development through education and entrepreneurship. Prevention services are in place to help people avoid homelessness
What do we do
Barka UK Voluntary Reconnections project provides assisted return for Central and Eastern European (CEE) migrants to their country of origin. The project aims to ensure humane reconnection and reintegration of vulnerable migrants who are unable or unwilling to remain in the UK and wish to return voluntarily to their countries of origin, but lack the resources to do so.
Since June 2007, Barka UK has helped to return voluntarily to the countries of origin, over 5000 migrants from Central and Eastern Europe.
