Our women's organisation offers advice, information, and support for Bangladeshi women in Manchester. We work towards providing a safe space to empower, educate and help their overall development in society. We support vulnerable women through complex emotional situations and help them to gain confidence through developmental work. The areas that we cover include support for victims of domestic abuse, forced marriage and ‘honour' based violence. We also assist with welfare rights, housing, health, education, training, employment advice, promoting wellness, mental health and reducing isolation with outreach workers through special sessions. We also provide English, sewing, dressmaking, child development classes, a mother and toddler group and coffee mornings for the elderly.
This donation would be used to refurbish our unused creche space and transform the space into a community cafe, which will encourage volunteering, social enterprise, and will be a safe space for women to relax and socialise.
