Barka UK at the Scottish Parliament
On April 14th, Barka UK representative Ewa Sadowska took part in the Cross Party Group on Poland in the Scottish Parliament. The meeting was hosted by Claire Baker MSP and was attended by over 20 participants including Consul General of the Republic of Poland in Edinburgh, Vice Consul Piort Leszczynski and Lorraine Cook, the Policy Officer at Convention of Scottish Local Authorities Strategic Migration Partnership.
At the meeting Ewa Sadowska presented the activities of Barka Foundation in Poland and Barka UK in London regarding the implementation of support programmes to vulnerable Eastern European nationals in Western Europe.
The Group members were interested to learn about Barka projects as there had been concerns about a number of homeless and rough sleeping Polish nationals with no recourse to public funds in Scotland.
