What We Do
MEMEC runs a range of activities for the community, including those that are educational, provide opportunities to socialise, provide support for physical and mental wellbeing and help to navigate UK systems and services.
Pre-Covid, we were running these services and activities face-to-face but unfortunately we have had to suspend most of these activities. However, we have adapted under the circumstances and are currently running certain activities and services over zoom with great success!
