The Shpresa family is always growing, but will forever welcome new members – each of you becomes a part of who and what we are! Our main goal is to give every individual the best chance of happiness and success, equipping all service users with the knowledge, skills and support to overcome the challenges and obstacles that can arise when establishing a new life in the UK. We are not afraid to tackle big issues like domestic violence, asylum seekers’ right to work and more jobs for refugees. We are supporters and advocates for LGBTQ+, mental health, and anyone living in danger or poverty, and work tirelessly to end stigma and discrimination. We welcome everyone – regardless of background or knowledge – into our culture, our community, our traditions and our family. And we are committed to every person having the best experience – whether that’s virtually or face-to-face – when accessing our services.
How it Works
Volunteering is central to our mission to enable Albanian speaking people to play a full role in UK society. You can volunteer as an Albanian speaker to gain skills and experience that will empower and equip you to live a happier, healthier and more positive life. Or you can volunteer as an English speaker and support our work by directly helping our service users, or assisting in other areas of the charity – this website, for example, is thanks in huge part to our volunteers.
Shpresa Programme is a charity and donations make a huge difference to us and to the people we support. With more, we can do more! Your donation will go to work immediately and will make a very real and positive impact on someone’s life. Thank you for your support.
