The service gives women a safe space to discuss issues that affect them and support each other. Since December, the group has met 4 times in COVID secure spaces and now have strong bonds, often checking on each other via WhatsApp group. COVID-19 led to more women reporting difficulties in their relationships during the lockdowns. To address this, we worked with our Peer educators and Befriend bilingual volunteers to deliver 6 monthly workshops addressing VAWG and relationship issues reaching many women. The Health and Wellbeing Coordinator (HWC) also provide 1-to-1 emotional and practical support for women from African and Arabic speaking communities who are survivors of physical and/or emotional abuse.
“I am so glad to be a member of RWoB and appreciate the support from the staff who gave me weekly calls. They made me feel like I was part of their family. I was part of many activities before like the English class, the Arts and Crafts club and the lunch club before the COVID-19 pandemic.”
