About Europia

Europia is a registered charity and community development organisation established in 2008. Our friendly team of staff and volunteers are committed to supporting and empowering European nationals who have come to live and work in Greater Manchester. 

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

Through our practical community and well-being projects, training sessions, advice clinics and legal surgeries, we make people feel at home, connect them with their local communities, and give them the knowledge and skills they need to make their hopes and dreams a reality.
