We’re a Womanist initiative dedicated to bringing race and faith-sensitive specialist services & culturally appropriate support to women of African heritage in Edinburgh.
We address social isolation, migration trauma and racial trauma.
Through offering culturally appropriate race-sensitive, faith-sensitive and trauma-informed, stigma-free support and services as well as mental health and well-being support through coaching and mentoring.
We have a trusted network of partners who understand the needs of the people we serve and have a human rights-based approach to working with people.
“We improve the lives of women and empower women because women are needed for the stability of the home, women are the backbone of communities and women shape the future”
We are committed to the promotion of equality and diversity by raising awareness, challenging and reducing health and social inequalities through the provision of specific, specialist, faith sensitive, culturally appropriate and practical mental health, well-being and integration support and services to women and families of African heritage living in North Edinburgh.
