About PEA


PEA is a non profit organization set up in October 2009 to support adaptation and integration of Poles in the UK. Our aim is to empower communities and improve the lives of Poles in the UK by offering different forms of support, information and personal development. We also create positive environment for integration and community cohesion promoting art, culture and mutual understanding.

Since April 2012 PEA is registered as Community Interest Company and offers support to all Central and Eastern European communities in the region. PEA does not have a permanent budget, only budget for specific projects. We work with PEA for our community, because we believe that there is an urgent need to fill the gap that exists in the West Midlands to support and promote Polish community and culture.
