Why?

In Southall, women were facing barriers to accessing support and services to improve their wellbeing and mental health, because of poor mental health, loneliness or isolation from others in their faith communities, lack of connectedness with other local women with whom they might share problems, limited knowledge of where to access support or counselling, hesitation to speak to those outside cultural or faith groups about problems due to stigma, and a lack of personal skills and resources concerning what can be done to help.

The Listening Space is run by women with training in therapeutic skills needed to support other women in their community, such as newly arrived female migrants. This includes practical skills such as listening, communication, signposting, and also self-care and problem solving too.
