United Kingdom of Polish Women in the UK

About us

We inspire Polish Women in the UK. Here are the main areas of our activity
Congress of Polish Women

For the first time the Congress of Polish Women was held in London in 2013. It is our biggest event, which gives us the opportunity to show how much we can achieve together.

Polish Woman of the Year

Every year at the Congress we nominate the most active Polish women in the UK.

Other events

The Congress is only one of many events the United Kingdom of Polish Women organises throughout the year in London. For up to date information, please visit our FB Fan page.

Polish Women in the UK

We are an important part of the British society.
Polish women have great potential - we help them to realise it!

According to the Office for National Statistics (2012) there are over 750 thousands Poles living in the UK, the unofficial data, however, shows that there are about 2 million, of which half are women. These women work in the UK, they achieve success, determine the quality of life of Polish families abroad and play a significant role in the UK job market, contrary to the way media have portrayed them. The conclusions drawn from the first Congress in 2013 inspired the members of the committee to continue this initiative, creating further opportunities to exchange experiences, opinions and inspirations within the community of Polish women in the UK.

  • We dispel the myths

    Our aim is to not only show that some stereotypes of Polish women in the UK are both untrue and harmful, but also build their positive image.

  • We inspire

    Through our activities and initiatives we aim to support Polish women in the UK so that they can realise their potential in business, art, science, etc. We encourage them to nurture their passions and gain education, which would enable them to cope successfully with personal issues, difficulties in their professional careers or health-related problems.
