The Romanian and Eastern European Hub and CommUNITY Barnet are delighted to announce that after two years of collaboration and extensive engagement with the most vulnerable groups during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Hub has now become an independent charitable organisation.
Cecilia Petre, COO & Co-Founder of The Romanian and Eastern European Hub:
“We would like to thank CommUNITY Barnet for helping us identify the gap in support needed by Romanians and other Eastern European groups living in NW London and guide us on pulling this project together. Our journey is a success story, and we are pleased that the Hub has emerged and thrived during two very difficult years and to have become an independent organisation.
"We will continue to advocate for a fair representation of all Eastern Europeans, amplify under-represented and marginalised Eastern European voices, and aim to achieve equity for all.”
Julie Pal, CEO of CommUNITY Barnet:
“Congratulations to all past and current Hub employees and volunteers, many of whom are still part of the Hub’s team. We will continue to support the independent Hub in our Community Infrastructure Building capacity and hope their story will inspire others to join us.”
As of 1 June 2022, the Romanian and Eastern European Hub can be contacted exclusively on:
