What We Do

Sweissy Union undertake several community and humanitarian projects.  Numerous other projects are planned in accordance with our Mission Objectives. We work alongside other communities, organisations and local projects in helping build safer communities both in the UK and abroad.

Community Empowerment

Sweissy Union is a UK based charity actively engaged in the advancement of education and relief of financial hardship. Our principal beneficiaries are Sierra Leoneans living in the UK. However,  all our services are accessible to the wider community. We work strenuously with disadvantaged and socially excluded Sierra Leoneans who are facing barriers to gaining sustainable employment. We're proud of our role in helping our beneficiaries break poverty's strangle-hold within our communities. 

This and our numerous other projects are all focussed on personal & community "Empowerment". Some of our key projects include; Capacity building, Employment training, providing intensive support to users in securing gainful employment or self-employment, personal development promoting community & social integration ; community focussed employment  services: Adult-Learning, Legal assistance and advice services. Additional training geared towards qualifications to NVQ levels 2-4, Technical certificates and Higher certificates.
