  • Disseminating quality information on issues which matter to them.
  • Organising culturally sensitive customised training programmes.
  • Influencing/Lobbying policy makers.
  • Being committed to refugee women being consistent and clear about our service provision, not diluting our principles of support to refugee women.
  • Involving them in our activities at different levels.
To promote and raise awareness of the public and decision-makers about the needs and aspirations of refugee women as well as about their positive contributions to UK society.

We do this through:

  • Encouraging employment of refugee women of all nationalities to work together.
  • Promoting networking.
