Advocacy & Information

We are here to advocate with refugee and migrant women in the West Midlands, create information and inspire change in partnership with others. 

Community Advocacy

Due to limited capacity we are limiting our community advocacy. We are  offering  phone support to all women, giving information and advice, and connecting them to other organisations that can assist. We will continue to provide advice on immigration, health, housing and money issues where there is capacity amoung volunter advocates.
