    Centrepoint has launched a special program in response to the extraordinary arrival of refugees from the conflict in Ukraine. The initial focus of this initiative will be on English Conversation Groups to help S-status holders from Ukraine to maintain or improve their English skills.

    At its core is an offer for a limited number of S-status holders to take out a regular one-year membership at a reduced rate after a one-month free trial period. Donations from a new fund within Centrepoint will subsidize the remaining portion.

    There are two specific ways for Centrepoint members to contribute to the initiative:

    • volunteer to lead a new English (or German) Conversation Group. Please email conversations[at]centrepoint.ch for more information.

    • donate to the special fund to subsidize one-year Centrepoint memberships for the S-status holders who wish to join us. Any size donation will be gladly accepted. To make an online donation to the Centrepoint account please use the following details:

      - IBAN: CH05 0900 0000 4545 9899 5
      - Centrepoint, Im Lohnhof 8, 4051 Basel
      - Purpose of payment: Ukraine Membership Fund
      - Please clearly state name of donor

    If you are an S-status holder and wish to apply to join Centrepoint please click here.
