Afghan Women’s Support Group in Hayes UB3

REAP is very proud to support the Hillingdon Afghan Women’s Support Group

Afghan Women’s Support Group                .
Update 22/10/21

Because of Covid, the group had to go online and is not yet able to restart face to face meetings in Hayes because they don’t currently have access to a suitable space.  They are already supporting new arrivals by phone alls and whatsapp groups and this will keep going in the months ahead.  If you are an Afghan woman (or supporting) who wants support please email REAP  sarah@reap.org.uk  and we will connect you with the group leaders.

The group leaders aim to rebuild the support framework for Afghan women – both women who have been in the UK for some time, and also preparing to support Afghan women arriving in coming months following the takeover of the Taliban in Afghanistan. 

For activities and practical support to Afghan women you can also contact Afghan and Central Asian Association who have some groups and activities in Hounslow and other areas of London.  https://acaa.org.uk

Please note.  Group coordinators do not wish to be contacted for media interviews, and are not able to set up interviews with participants.

Offers of goods, clothes, bedding, food are very kindly acknowledged but neither the group nor REAP have the capacity to handle donations of this kind at this point.  

Usually the group meets once per week in Hayes UB3. 

Pre-Covid Sessions held at Nestles Ave Children Centre:  Mothers with children under the age of 5 years and women expecting babies were welcomed at sessions held at Nestles Ave Children Centre.   Sessions at the Children’s Centre had a creche for your baby to play.

If you speak little or no English, if you feel alone or just unsure and want to meet  other mothers who speak Dari, Pashtu.  There is an advocate / interpreter available.

Thank you to CNWL (NHS), Nestles Avenue Children’s Centre, DAWN and REAP for their valuable, long term, ongoing support.
