The achievements of The Polish Support Group

In this interview at The Friendship Cafe, Agnieszka recalls her personal experience of moving to Barton from Poland and the challenges she faced upon arrival.

Her experiences led her to co-found The Polish Support Group, to provide information and services to those moving to the area, and thereby ease their transition and integration into a new country and life.

Agnieszka remembers the support offered to her by members of the Asian community and the support of The Friendship Cafe and other key community venues in the founding of The Polish Support Group. She also reflects on the increase in shops selling Polish products, the effect this has on well-being, and the different experiences of adults and children who move to the area.
