HealthProm has launched a new initiative aimed at supporting migrant women from Eastern Europe and Central Asia living in London.
This work will support this vulnerable group to address and overcome challenges such as isolation and barriers to accessing services and employment. We will specifically target unemployed women, those in low-paid employment, those who do not speak English and those struggling to adapt to life in the UK.
The project will commence with focus groups and interviews with migrant women from the targeted regions to provide a more detailed picture of their needs and the issues they face. Based on the results, we will develop and pilot a range of support activities including peer support groups, individual consultations and mentoring, community events and targeted trainings. These activities will increase confidence, knowledge and transferrable skills.
HealthProm is delighted to have the opportunity to extend its expertise supporting vulnerable women and families living in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, to those living locally in London.
