Baytree is situated in a poor and underserved area in Lambeth, marked by its gang crime, violence, insecurity and trauma. All families we work with are suffering not just from poverty and its consequences: poor health, poor mental health, overcrowded accommodation but also from social isolation. This means poor aspirations, and weak social networks to sustain those who raise their aspirations. A great barrier many of them is poor use of English and poor literacy.
We offer a safe and beautiful space where every woman and girl is listened to and feels welcome. For Women: We deliver activities daily from 9.30 am to 3 pm (except Fridays). All activities are based around our five pillars: Family Stability; Financial Stability; Education; Employment and Wellbeing. For girls we offer a wide range of positive activities, academic support and career advise and guidance. This enables the women and girls that come to Baytree to break the cycle of poverty for good.
Baytree has been a life boat to me! When i was sinking in the sea of life, and not knowing where to hold, Baytree just appeared. I am now happy, confident and in a secure job and home. I am also enjoying my children's development and know how to support them in our new country.
