IGBO Community Aberdeen

We awarded £2.030 to this project.

IGBO Community is made up of black ethnic people many of whom are immigrants to the UK. This has posed a number of challenges during the course of the pandemic. The majority of the people in this community work in ‘relief’ roles and therefore are not required when many companies and businesses are closed. Also due to the fact the majority of them are immigrants to the UK they are here on visas that do not allow them access to benefits and government support. Many of these people have had to rely on food banks in order to feed their families, however, these food banks are full of British food that they do not normally feed to their families.

IGBO Community Aberdeen provides bereavement support, social activities and coping advice to those new immigrants who are still in the process of settling in. They also provide a culturally appropriate emergency food support to their clients.
