The Boundary Women’s Project aims to encourage local women to realise their own potential, especially individuals experiencing social exclusion or minority ethnic women facing language barriers.

A varied programme of regular activities ranges from ESOL (English language) classes, Keep Fit, IT sessions, to a Women’s Forum discussion group. An exciting textile training initiative is also taking place. Those taking part gain new skills, become more confident in their everyday lives, while becoming involved in the wider community. We are also proudly the home of the new Juta Shoes social enterprise, providing training and paid employment to women who produce beautiful handmade shoes (further information about the project is available at Juta Shoes).

The project also has an outreach service, helping individual women overcome isolation and providing one-to-one support.

If you are interested in joining the group, email Sabeha or telephone 020 7739 8066.

“I really enjoyed the health programme, never having done yoga before!”

“Cooking in front of people was scary, but when I started giving out samples of my food, I was amazed that they wanted more and liked the taste so much – it did wonders for my confidence!”
