Building Better Futures
Building Better Futures has two aspects: Personal Growth and Personal Skills.
We have witnessed levels of self worth among the Roma community that are lower than anything we have ever seen before.
To raise self esteem and confidence we work to enable women to recognise their gifts and skills and from this point for them to develop aspirations for a better future. We also provide sessions in well-being and managing stress.
Personal Skills are developed as part of our bespoke literacy programme which teaches English language and numeracy at nursery level in a dignified manner to adults. Many of the people we support will have had little or no education in their first language so at times our starting point is penmanship.
We are aspirational that some of our students will progress to ESOL and to learning basic computing skills with a view to gaining employment.
We are also offering a bespoke parenting programme that will explore the differences in parenting styles between different cultures.
