Women can access our services through self-referral or agency-referral
SHEWISE is a voluntary sector organisation working at the grass root level to support the educational, economic, social development and mental wellness of ethnic minority women with a focus on South Asian women and young girls across London particularly in Tower Hamlets and Hounslow.
Our Holistic Model of Empowered Living focuses on developing attitudes, capabilities and opportunities for women and young girls. We enable them to realise and activate their own innate ability to be the primary agency in their life. We develop their interpersonal, employability and entrepreneurial skills, building their confidence and ability to strengthen their willpower to practice creating new ideas and actions with values of wellness, self-care and internal freedom enabling them to pursue their goals to live a life of financial independence and wellness.
We offer safe haven services and multi-level programmes that are culturally sensitive, personal and understandable to multicultural women and girls. Our programmes provide a holistic mixture of engaging bilingual workshops, skill development activities and mental wellness initiatives that target multiple barriers. We provide opportunities for women and young girls to exercise expression, explore creativity, and practice physical movement.
Our holistic model of empowerment focuses on building new responses to experiences and relationships, helping women to move away from fear, trauma, isolation, loneliness and alienation that leads them to shame, guilt, and lack of self-worth. We provide knowledge and expertise to help them experience connection, belonging, grounding, freedom and expansion.
