A big welcome to Charlotte

We’re delighted to welcome Charlotte Dutton as our Project Officer for The Welcome Project. This is a collaboration between the One World Centre and Cafe Lingo aimed at helping new arrivals to the Isle of Man settle more easily, particularly those who don’t have English as a first language.

We are grateful to the Manx Lottery Trust for funding this project which will run initially for 18 months. We have set up a separate web page for the project here and there is also a Facebook page which we will use to share news and events as the project progresses.

With the Isle of Man aiming to grow its population and world events – including conflict, climate and economic hardship – driving more people to move in search of safety and security, our aim is to make the arrival of new people a positive experience for newcomers and Islanders alike.
