How we create change

Empower

Through our creative and educational activities such as English lessons, drama, yoga, radical knitting and more, we support women to build their confidence and skills. Our warm and welcoming space helps to combat the isolation faced by women seeking safety and creates pathways for women to rebuild their lives on their own terms.

Influence

When women tell their own stories, they can change minds and build understanding about what it means to seek safety in the UK. We support refugee and asylum-seeking women to speak to the media, to parliamentarians, at events and through the arts.
