    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 is 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.

    If you are a Centrepoint member and would like to help with the initiative, we are looking for volunteers to lead a new English (or German) Conversation Group. Please email conversations[at] for more information.

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

    If you wish to learn more about the initiative please click here.
