Europia offers services ranging from legal advice, benefit advice, EUSS application assistance and Emergency Funds for the most vulnerable in our communities. Europia also organises community development and wellbeing groups such as the Europia Art Collective, the Europia Roma Project and the Europia Women’s Group.
