Ugandan Community Relief Association (UCRA)

UCRA is a charity, training, consultancy and research organisation with a specialism in BME needs and literacy. UCRA designs and delivers a range of courses which enable people to develop their skills, to strengthen their awareness and self-confidence, and to secure qualifications and employment. It was established in 1984 with initial aim of helping those deported from Uganda and now serves as a gateway for all Africans specifically and BAMEs in the UK in general, including refugees and asylum seekers. UCRA also works with networks and partnerships of similar aims. Their services include:

- Basic skills training (ESOL, IT, literacy and numeracy)
- Immigration casework
- Counselling
- Youth Services
- Health promotions (HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases) through education/awareness and support groups
- Promotion of volunteering and work experience
- Advice, advocacy and assistance in accessing services such as benefits, registering with GPs, schools and social services
