How Can I Help WSSAG and Other Asylum Seeking and Refugee Women in Wales?

Anyone can provide support in the following ways:

Community Solidarity

Every individual within our group is a woman with a complex past and an uncertain future, making their way in a new country. It can be scary and isolating. Making friends with people who want to show solidarity with their situation can mean so much to our members and helps build community links and understanding. Celebrate diversity in the community by attending one of our open days or inviting us to yours; including us where we will feel welcomed; add your name to our petitions; help raise awareness of the issues women seeking sanctuary face in the UK. All this will help us to build a new life here.

One thought on “Support Us

  1. Hello Eleanor

    Thanks for your message!

    Baby clothes would be great. Would you be able to drop them off on a Saturday?

    I’ll forward your message to our coordinator, Constance Nzenou, and I’m sure she’ll contact you as we are always looking for volunteers, especially with teaching English.

    Thank you so much and all the best

    Jennifer
