Our activities

Women for Refugee Women supports a network of over 300 refugee and asylum-seeking women to build their confidence and skills, and develop friendships in a welcoming and supportive space, both in-person and online.

Our creative and educational activities run during school term times and aim to create a sense of community where women can grow together, explore their creativity, and begin to heal.
