Employees and Volunteers


From it’s creation, the Institute has continued to operate on a day to day basis largely thanks to the hard work put in by our volunteers. It is thanks to their efforts, dedication and skills that the Institute can continue it’s work, preserving Polish history and culture and representing Poland and Poles in Great Britain over the last 60 years.
Generations of Poles combine their enthusiasm and skills to support the Institute, including members of the oldest generation of Polish immigrants into the United Kingdom following the Second World War, those who arrived during the Solidarity movement and liberation of Poland from Russian Communist annexation, the most recent migrants, following Poland’s EU membership as well as second and third generation Poles. They all work together to make the archives available to the public, preserve important historical documents, bring in the use of new technologies, organise exhibitions, talks and tours and assist in the day to day running of the organisation.


The Institute also employs three part time members of staff: Anna Stefanicki, Olga Topol and Julia Dudkiewicz.
We also welcome delegates from the National Archives of Poland who undertake work placements at the Institute.
