The Polish British Integration Centre (PBIC)

The PBIC was established in 2007 in response to the needs of the newly arrived Polish Migrant workforce and their families. We offer: Drop-in surgeries, ‘ESOL for Integration’ classes, social events, placement for volunteers, careers advice and qualification conversion as well as Introduction to Polish Language and Culture program.

All our activities are driven by one overriding purpose – to help those who need support in successfully integrating into British society.

In March 2015 we were awarded Big Lottery Funding from the Reaching Communities Fund to deliver the Migrant Integration Project. Activities under the project are delivered across Bedfordshire, for more detail please visit our website : http://www.pbic.co.uk/

If you have found yourself in a situation of crisis and you don’t have money to buy food, contact our office (The Place, Bradgate Road, MK40 3DE).  The PBIC, in cooperation with the Food Bank, offers vouchers for food products to people in need.

For those interested in Polish language and culture we offer the “Introduction to Polish Language and Culture course’ and one to one Polish tuition
