Here at Welwitschia Welfare Centre, we believe in change for the better. We pride ourselves in making people feel happy and making difference in their lives. Like the late Mother Theresa once said; “ Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s Kindness”. Here are some of the testimonies of our clients;
For me, WWCUK is the only organisation for Portuguese speaking migrants that works for the community. I have not seen any other Portuguese organisation working like WWCUK. The way I was helped with my benefits case is just wonderful. Your staff are so friendly and patient. I hope that you continue to exist.

I would like to thank WWCUK for the good work that they did for me. Your organisation helped me with my housing, welfare and education issues. I am especially thankful to you for helping my children enrol at a local school. I would appeal to anyone who has a problem to get in touch with WWCUK in order to get help and assistance.

If it was not for your lot, I mean WWCUK I do not know what would happen to me and my children. It is thanks to you that I managed to get private accommodation when the council discharge its duties of helping me as I did not pass the habitual residence test. Being new in the country with no English, was tough. many, many thanks.

I was very pleased with the services provided to me and my family by your staff. Through you, we found a new accommodation after staying in an overcrowding temporary accommodation for 4 years. With your help, the council managed to rehouse us to better accommodation. Now that I know you exist, I will always come to your centre for advice and assistance. God Bless You all.

I was very pleased to get assistance and help from WWCUK. You have helped me with so many things. From Disability living allowance claim to British Citizenship. I hope that your organisation continues to help and support people in need like me. You are a very caring people.
(Disabled Client from Guinee- Bissau, 43)
As soon as I heard that WWCUK opened an outreach work office in Stockwell, south London, I was very happy and said to myself, at last, we have a Portuguese Speaking Advice Centre that we longed for. The following week of the WWCUK opening, my husband lost his job. I went to them and we were welcomed with open arms. Your organisation helped my husband apply for JSA, housing benefit and council tax benefit. Thanks to you that we managed to apply for a child tax credit which we were unaware of.
