Social Disadvantage 

No Food, No Money, Homelessness, Refuge, and Unemployment

Although the predominant aim of our organization is to inspire women into entrepreneurship and become successful business owners, however, we are much more than that. 

 

Our social support initiative has evolved through our enterprise development program, where participants are often women experiencing multiple challenges including language barriers and social exclusion, to ensure these women reach their full potential we've taken a holistic approach to supporting them.

Our Initiatives

 

Ex-offender resettlement program for BAME women 

 

The program is designed to support women by providing: -

 

  • One-2one sessions to establish their needs upon release

  • What can be done to stop them from re-offending

  • How they can overcome cultural barriers when faced with family and the wider community

  • How they can access services which often they are unable to, due to "shame"

  • How they can continue learning and practicing faith

  • Help so they can build self-confidence and self-esteem through the "Heal Yourself Programme" which focuses on personal development

The eight weeks holistic program ensures women are fully supported until they are ready to manage independently

heal yourself.

 

The program is designed to support women experiencing social, domestic abuse​, poverty, and homelessness

who now want to progress and rebuild their lives.

 

The program helps women to identify the skills they already have or need to set life goals which will raise self-esteem and confidence, enhance employment prospects, and lead them to a more fulfilling and quality of life.

 

We work in partnership with Community Eats to provide food, clothing, and refreshments to homeless women and refugee women in Central London every Sunday and Thursday. 

 

The project has been running for the last 5 years and is dedicated not only to providing necessities but also to help these destitute women to heal and recover. 

 

WHO WE HELP

 

We work with women and girls from all walks of life regardless of age, ethnicity, and religion.

 

We also work with female ex-offenders and refugees.

HOW WE HELP

 

We listen and give our clients the space to talk, helping them to explore their situation and identify the way forward for themselves.

 

We do our best to provide our clients with as much helpful information, support, and encouragement as we can.

We may ask them some questions to help us fully understand their situation and explore their feelings. We talk through the possible options and consider specific organizations, which may be able to help them.

 

Our aim is to put them in a good position to make independent choices and decisions that are right for them.

We support them through the provision of guidance, casework support, counseling, confidential advice, outreach, and signposting along with giving them tools to make real changes in their lives.

We have trained bilingual staff and volunteers to offer information and one-to-one support

We work with individuals, families, organizations, and multi-agencies creating awareness and deliver a coordinated service between DWP, Legal Bodies, Mental Health Institutions, and Prisons.
