Story


TogetherintheUK is about helping people who have come to the UK by giving them vital insights into daily life here.

It’s a massive challenge to leave the place where you were born and grew up, to make a new life in another country. Think about the first time you went to a new country, perhaps just on holiday, and how even the simplest activities are daunting. The pace of life is different, shops’ opening hours seem random, people have different concepts of punctuality, and even trying to buy something as simple as headache tablets turns into a major challenge.

Now multiply this by everything you take for granted in your daily life to discover what it’s like to be a newcomer to the UK.

For example: Why do you need a bank account to rent a flat? How and where do I get a bus to stop? Why do we have to buy milk in pints but water in litres? Why does no one want to lead you up the garden path, when it seems a reasonable route?

This are the things you just know when you’ve grown up in a country but can be baffling to someone else. Our aim is to help newcomers get over these hurdles of everyday life so they can settle in to their new lives and communities.

So, how do we know what these things are? Simple - we ask the people who have journeyed here to share their insights and tips.

What we are fundraising for:
After a year’s work we need to develop and promote a complete website.
Please help us to do this. Any contribution you can make will help to create bridges so that people better understand each other.
We are looking to raise initially about £5,000.
This will help us to:
• Develop a programme of events to help build awareness including a fundraising event in February
• Promote awareness of the website so that more people know about it and use it
• Develop more content
