Service Details

The programme responds to a need to provide appropriate and holistic services for BME women, who have an active role in changing their own lives and communities. This must be coupled with the need to respect BME women, as individuals, recognising and acknowledging their unique potential and experience.

The programme will help you to:

  • Define your ambition and develop to achieve better outcomes in your community
  • Develop the confidence to serve in the community
  • Identify barriers that prevent BME and migrant women from delivering their potential, and how to overcome them.

Outline of the programme

This programme aims to:

  • To equip BME women to develop leadership skills, to enable effective and creative interventions when working with BME women and their communities.
  • To gain understanding of the winder context of the 'hostile environment' for migrants and the impacts of the measures that were brought in through the two Immigration Acts of 2014 and 2016.
  • To enable work that recognises and acknowledges the multiple forms of oppression experienced by BME and migrant women
  • To gain knowledge and understanding of migrants' rights in the UK
  • To recognise and minimise the barriers that inhibit BME women accessing local services
  • To gain knowledge and understanding of how to influence local government and communities
  • To equip BME women with project development and project management skills.

This programme incorporates direct training sessions, peer support and private study. These will serve to inform your ability to demonstrate your understanding and skills gained.
