Adur Ukraine Support Association (AUSA) was established in September 2022 to formalise the work and support of a group of volunteers who had been fundraising and providing support to Ukrainians in the Adur (Sompting, Lancing, Shoreham, Southwick, Fishersgate) area since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022.
AUSA is an unincorporated association and is run by a team of Officers and Committee (see below for current Officers and Committee members). We are a membership association and run for the benefit and support of our Members.
AUSA’s aims are to benefit and support its Members and our aims include:
Supporting the community of displaced Ukrainians (guests) in the Adur area
Support the needs of those Ukrainians and their hosts
Preserving and promoting Ukrainian culture and heritage
Promoting a mutually beneficial cultural and recreational relationship between Ukrainians and our communities
Working with other groups to be part of a wider support network
We hope that our group will involve the whole community with input and participation from Ukrainian guests, Ukrainian diaspora, hosts and sponsors and local interested residents.
