About Women’s Inclusive Team
The charity began in 2003 with a group of mothers that needed the space to chat and support one another with being new parents, trying to get into employment or being healthier as well as much more. It remained informal for many years but the clear need for a service that specialised in working with the needs of BAME women and particularly Somali women became very apparent. This led to the organisation becoming structured with trustee, business registration and business accounts etc. It began as the Somali Integration Team, changing its name to the Women’s Inclusive Team in 2018.
At present run for women by women and their families in Tower Hamlets, the Women’s Inclusive Team aim is to support disadvantaged female Tower Hamlets residents to become independent and socially included. We focus on supporting the needs of BAME women and promoting social cohesion within the wider community.
Empowering women through training, employment, and advice is our core format of delivery will continue to be the general format of work. The organisation aims to create more sustainability in the services and support available.
We do this through our training programmes and projects, these include;
- Accredited Mental Health First Aid
