We aim to assist BAME women as best as we can as awareness of mental health remains at the forefront during this critical time. We run activities and workshops throughout the year to help support women to learn new skills and help them to be empowered and meet their goals. Workshops also run through the year around health and employment. We provide training to women from low income and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds to improve transferrable skills. This will increase their confidence and communication skills, reduce isolation and help them to access new vocational and training opportunities. With your financial support, we could reach out and help to provide counselling to a wider community.
The project aims to expand their work to the surrounding areas of Ealing borough, to provide specialist help for the growing number of young women experiencing domestic violence/abuse. Women in need of counselling support we offer outreach work that informed young mothers of their rights and their entitlement to benefits and housing support.
If you or someone you know has experienced domestic violence or sexual abuse and need help finding crisis resources, Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Asian Community Concern also works on the challenges associated with violence such as homelessness, woman wellbeing and Immigration. We provide life skills workshops for women who have experienced domestic violence or bereavement. These sessions will promote independence and interaction with others and help the women to develop their confidence.
We work with many other specialist services and are able to provide referrals to other services that can offer support to women. We are also able to signpost women to other services that are able to help them with their needs. For more details https://www.wellbeingwestlondon.org.uk/services/asian-community-concern/
We deliver 15 hours virtual courses on sewing for any women who is not economically active or who consider themselves socially disadvantaged and would like to explore their options for employment, education or self-employed.
We provide a training and employability program aimed to motivate and build confidence for women.
Your funding will enable us in continuing to provide women with accreditation, valuable skills and range of career choices through the use of online workshops and webinars.
The Mental Wellbeing Talk, Learn, Listen - Virtual Classroom is designed as a complete mental wellbeing approach for Women. We also practise yoga and meditation to relax mind and body.
Asian Community Concern will offer a range of support covering a range of areas including employability, healthy relationships, personal safety, Skill development education and one to one emotional support.
ACC has been working with women to identify new areas of need and this will now include courses to improve English language, Personality Development, Self-management and Computer courses.
There will also be volunteer-led activities and family-based sessions to help improve relationships. We are looking forward for funding to support our programmes and activities. Your little help can make a big difference in our community.
By giving training and skill education we can empower the women in need (WIN) to build their confidence, identity and self-worth and reach their personal potential to work. The impact of our work is particularly felt in reducing the vulnerability of BAME women and girls, reducing the prejudice they face, and giving them greater access to rights and services – all of which allow them to contribute to society like any other citizen.
