Liverpool European Festival was made possible thanks to all the community organisations and individuals supporting Europeans in Liverpool and promoting their culture.
As part of the project we wanted to create an online resource presenting Liverpool European Communities, including a database of local organisations, and the cultural activities they offer. We want the local communities to be more aware of their European neighbours, their history in the city, traditions they still celebrate and open their artistic provision.
You can see the full directory on the Organisations page and below you can read even more details about them:
United For Ukraine
United for Ukraine was launched in GM in response to the war in Ukraine, it has been set up by businesses and other partners across the North of England to support evacuees coming to our region. Our site provides access to employment and further support services. For Ukrainian nationals, this initiative provides a searchable list of vacancies with employers who have committed to providing good job opportunities in a supportive environment. For employers, this initiative provides an easy and direct way to communicate job opportunities to Ukrainian nationals coming to the UK. The site also provides a wide range of information on further support that your new colleagues may find helpful.

In Limbo Project
Imagine you moved country, built a life, married, had children, a career, a business… You felt integrated and at home. One day, the country votes to leave the European Union, meaning that the rules you have built your life on are going to change. You feel betrayed and abandoned. Your certainties, life and security are gone. You are stuck in a painful limbo. The In Limbo Project is a not-for-profit initiative which collects and publishes testimonies of those most affected by Brexit. It gives a voice to EU citizens resident in UK, British citizens in the EU and their families. Our two books, “In Limbo” and “In Limbo Too” (available from spokesmansbooks.org), have been gifted to over 2000 political figures and journalists in the UK and EU with the hope of touching hearts to foster understanding.
Dante society Liverpool
The Dante Alighieri Society in Liverpool is a non-profit association whose headquarter is based in Rome and was established in 1889 with the aim of promoting the Italian language and culture around the world. It was named after Dante Alighieri, who is considered the father of the Italian language. There are currently more than 500 DA branches around the world with the number continuing to grow.
A UK-wide charity providing multilingual immigration advice (OISC level 3), which supports EU Citizens in the UK on the EUSS Settlement Scheme. Since Ukrainian refugees have been arriving in the UK we have been providing immigration advice and support to Ukrainians and their hosts. Every day our team faces cases which are caused by misunderstanding of how the Homes for Ukraine Scheme works. The scheme has been changed many times; that`s why Ukrainians and their hosts quite often might be confused with new rules and conditions. Our new service – Settled Ukraine Advice – provides professional advice and escalates immigration issues with Home Office if needed. Advice is provided by email and is free of charge.
