A community

Social activities and events are vital for women seeking protection. At the JRS Women's Space, women are given the opportunity to receive and create an environment of community and support.

Social activities and events are also organised through the Women’s Space, such as monthly peer-support lunches and school holiday activities. These help women to build networks and social connectedness for women and their children. JRS celebrates the diversity of our community by hosting special cultural events, such as Iftar dinners, Eid, Easter and Christmas with the community. We have held over 50 social and outreach activities reaching a total of 189 women and their children.

 100% of participants surveyed said they felt less alone since joining the Women’s Space.
