Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Refugee Women Connect

Information, advice and support for female asylum seekers, refugees and their children.

Get support

The best way to get support is to attend one of our drop-ins. All our drop-ins are a women-only safe space. At our drop-ins we offer refreshments, including a meal, opportunities to meet other women, get help and support from staff, volunteers and some other organisations that attend. Children are always welcome and we have toys for them to play with.

When you attend our drop-in we will explain the different ways that we can work with you.  This could be by offering you help finding a solicitor, making a phone call, interpreting a letter or providing you with someone who can attend an appointment with you.

If you are pregnant or have recently had a baby you can join our support group for women who are pregnant or have a child under one. This is a smaller group where you can get lots of useful advice and support. There are many other ways we can help and support you and as we are connected with lots of other organisations we can help connect you to them too.

We want to help all women be as informed as possible about the things that affect them. Refugee Women Connect runs workshops, activities and classes which will provide you with information on a range of topics. To find out about these please check the reception desk at each drop-in or speak to a staff member or volunteer.

If you need details of when and where our drop-ins run then please contact us.

If you are an Afghan refugee woman who is looking for support, please read our page where we have collected lots of resources, contact numbers and organisations that may be beneficial to you.

What should I expect?
At your first visit please bring all your home office documentation. You will see a caseworker who will register you with the organisation and assess how we can help you. After that you will be assigned a caseworker who will support you as needed and can refer you to one of our counsellors if necessary. If you do not require casework support then you will be able to come to the drop-in sessions to access social, practical and emotional support. We have volunteer interpreters available at our drop-in sessions.
Can I bring someone with me?
Children are always welcome and we have toys for them to play with. You can bring another female. If you wish to bring a male with you then you will need to come to see us at our office.
