The Welcome Project

The Welcome Project is a collaborative initiative between the One World Centre (Isle of Man) and Cafe Lingo with the aim of helping newcomers to the Isle of Man, particularly those who don’t have English as a first language, settle more easily

Kindly funded by the Manx Lottery Trust, the project will run initially for 18 months and will include the expansion of Cafe Lingo’s English language lessons, as well as information sessions and social events.

We are delighted to announce that Charlotte Dutton has become our Project Officer and she will be spending the next few weeks getting to know other people and organisations working in this space. If you’d like to get in touch with Charlotte you can email her at
