Welcome Women - Supporting Asylum Seeker & Refugee women (Ended April 2017)

We secured funding through Heart of England Community Foundation ‘New Beginnings Fund’ to run a brand new project 'Welcome Women', which aimed to reduce isolation facing Asylum Seeker & Refugee women in Coventry and their families. 

The project was funded for 9 months, and the programme took place at FWT, Hillfields Community Hub and other locations.

 The programme supported over 100 women through:  

~Arts based Wellbeing Workshops for women to develop skills, confidence & friendships

~ Healthy Lifestyles in a fun holistic way - healthy cooking, and exercise to reduce health inequalities 

~ Getting to know Coventry - visits to libraries, galleries and museums; community cohesion and integration 

~ Referral pathways – engaging hard to reach & isolated women and referring to essential services at FWT & partner agencies   

 We have continued the Wellbeing Workshops which take place every Friday 10-12 at FWT
