Description

We support people to reach their full potential by delivering free English lessons daily. The inability to access training, employment and voluntary opportunities due to a lack of English skills leaves migrants unable to integrate easily or contribute to their local communities, further hindered by the pandemic. Over the last few years, we have delivered various projects addressing crime prevention, youth diversion activities, advice and support at drop-in-centre in Gravesend and Northfleet. We currently deliver sports projects to address inactivity and different cultural events to celebrate and share traditions that have become celebrated and appreciated by the local community (e.g., St Nicholas Day, Porraimos -Romani Holocaust Exhibition and International Roma Day).

Description

Mayas has grown exponentially since last year. It all started with Maya’s Community Café last August. The café is often bursting at the seams. It’s where locals meet to share a coffee, to share problems and to support each other. Some just come to keep warm. Those who are lonely or isolated sometimes spend hours in the café. Hugs are free and plentiful. Rough sleepers come to charge phones, get a free meal and hope someone will wash their sleeping bag. Maya’s café is a safe space where people feel they belong. Maya’s Foodbank also operates here. We currently provide food for over 200 people a week. Customers are often signposted to other services or offered direct help where appropriate. The Ukrainian Hub also meets at the café. Help with job search, benefit queries and accommodation is offered to Ukrainian guests. We also run Maya’s FREE Shop which stocks recycled clothes, shoes, toys, bedding and household items. Provided customers don’t resell and only take what they need, they are welcome to take items completely free of charge. 50 people per hour visit the FREE shop during busy periods.
