Situation

Our work with Refugees/Asylum Seeker pregnant women with no recourse to public funds. We provide cots, prams, baby clothes etc. from our resource centre. Our volunteer parish nurse supports mums & families through pregnancy & by home support. We offer advice & guidance, parenting support, & a safe friendly place. We partner with Red Cross, Victim Support, Refugee Council & Social Services etc. The resource centre has grown too big to be managed by volunteers, we need a paid worker to continue

Solution

A grant would enable us to extend our resource centre work. Currently it's run by a volunteer manager but the work has grown too big. A grant would pay the salary of a refugee support worker which will help us be more efficient and support even more people and agencies. The support worker will work directly with female clients and children.
