Our team are fluent in Punjabi, Urdu, Hindi, and Bengali. We provide advocacy, emotional support, signposting and activities that reduce isolation, promote peer support, and enable women to access opportunities for themselves and their children. We run a programme of online and in-person activities, which improve access to relevant support, focus on mental well-being and increase participation in the local community. We currently provide weekly activities including arts and crafts, yoga, language skills, support groups, cooking club and mindfulness. We keep cases open, regardless of the level of risk and work with complex, medium and higher risk cases. We provide support every step of the way, crucially with cultural insight, knowledge and experience of the barriers women may face.

Right now we are running our Summer term timetable which includes:
