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 women focusing on education, employment, finances, family & wellbeing.

  • I love coming to Baytree because I learn lots of new things and it's helped me become more confident and everyone is so nice

  • I've been coming to Baytree for years now and honestly I don't know where I'd be without it - it's guided me thorugh my teenage years. Everyone cares and they have helped my learn about who I am and what I want to do with my life. Baytree has left me feeling empowered and I am excited for my future.
