Meet new friends and learn new skills

Our Women's Group meets each week for support and friendship, English Classes, and learning opportunities.


Our women’s group meets every Tuesday from 10:30am and offers a range of confidence building, empowering and skills development based activities.

It's a place where women can make friends and new connections, helping to reduce isolation and improving wellbeing. 

Shiraz finds attending our women’s group really beneficial, enjoying a welcoming, safe environment for women to meet.

The most useful part is that Muslim women are most comfortable in the women’s group. For me, communicating with different people from different cultures is very nice.


We meet at Refugee Roots, Clarendon Chambers, 32 Clarendon St, Nottingham, NG1 5LN. 

Samina's Story

The group and the English lessons for Samina has helped grow her confidence. When she attended our very first women's group session, Samina spoke no English and no one else in the group could speak Kurdish. Regardless of the language barrier, the other women were very kind to Samina, teaching her basic phrases and helping her communicate with pictures. As Samina attended our English lessons and more women joined the group, we were thrilled to see her coming out of her shell and communicating with the new women using her limited English.
