British Council

The British Council was founded in 1934 at a time when intolerance was on the rise in Europe. We were established as a response to the growing threat of racist ideologies, with the mandate to build trust and mutual respect among diverse communities through education, community development, English and the arts. Eighty five years on, this goal remains at the heart of our guiding principles. The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We are on the ground in six continents and over 100 countries, bringing international opportunity to life, every day. In 2019-20 we connected with 80 million people directly and with 791 million people overall, including online and through our broadcasts and publications.

We have extensive experience in supporting the development of civil society in Europe and beyond. The British Council in Poland is represented by Fundacja British Council, a registered charity. Fundacja British Council brings an experience of more than 80 years working in Poland to support intercultural dialogue, tolerance and mutual understanding.
