United Multicultural Centre
The United Multi-Cultural Centre is a registered charity that has been in service now for twenty eight years. Our aim and objective is to integrate the community regardless of colour, creed or nationality. The primary goal for the UMCC is to deliver training and build on peoples skills and building their confidence enabling them to integrate into society. This is an opportunity for the community to get back into work and gain qualifications that they never had the courage to do before. Beneficiaries enjoy our welcoming and friendly atmosphere where they can learn with friends and family and purely enjoy the experience of learning.
