Radiant and Brighter
Radiant and Brighter experienced many challenges when it re-located from Uganda to the UK. Unable to work for several years due to immigration controls, it was dependent on help from churches, family and friends for its daily needs. Through finding themselves in this situation they discovered that many immigrants face similar and sometimes worse difficulties. They also realised that there were very few organisations dedicated to offering the kind of practical help that would make a lasting difference.
Many people lose hope when circumstances are hard but they knew that by reaching out they could help others rediscover their skills and talents and improve their situation. They set up a very successful initiative in Glasgow in 2008 which gave immigrants access to the resources and opportunities they needed. Day-to-day we provided practical support and assistance from personal coaching, to advice on financial & legal matters, writing CV’s and applying for jobs.
Based on their experience and encouraged by friends, they made a decision to do something. That something is what became Radiant and Brighter, acquiring it’s Community Interest Company status in 2014. At Radiant and Brighter, they envision a community that is caring, a community that works together to bring about positive change. They believe everyone is uniquely gifted and has the ability to change their lived reality. Together, they can all make our communities Radiant and Brighter.
