  • Baytree is family to me and it's helped me with my own family too. My daughter and I come here together and our relationship is so good now.

    — Esra, 35

  • Baytree has helped me so much. They have helped me to become more confident and set goals for my future. They have helped me get work experience and become a leader. I don't think I would be doing anything for my future without Baytree.

Situation

Those who access the Centre face multiple barriers to inclusion, identified by the women and girls themselves as: lack of English language skills; lack of opportunities to learn in culturally appropriate settings; inability to access employment opportunities; school exclusions; poverty; poor housing; isolation; mental health issues; racism and discrimination (including religious discrimination); youth violence; abusive homes; family breakdown and a lack of family support and structure.

Solution

Working in a person centered & holistic way, Baytree tailors services to the individual needs of our women & girls. Among other services we offer: ESOL, integration support & advocacy for asylum seekers, refugees & migrants including girls who do not have a place in school or college; tailored support to young women who are not in education, training or employment and have fallen through the gaps; social mobility coaching for mothers with a focus on family stability
