Chris Brandenburg GateWe won a bursary from Locality to attend a three day ‘On The Move – At Home and In the World’ conference, which examined the international support programmes for displaced communities. The conference aimed to share best practice and innovative ideas, to be taken back to host countries by attendees.

We were honoured to represent FWT and share our award winning programmes which reduce isolation and remove barriers facing all women including BME women, in Coventry. Incredible to hear of similar work taking place in other parts of the world.
