Migrant Women Health & Fitness Project

This project funded mainly by funding from the St James's Ward Community First Panel and the Saintbury Trust is dedicated to improving the health & well-being of women from various migrant communities, living across the St James's ward area, through physical activities, aducation, outreach and advocacy. The project caters for 30 women meeting for 2-3 hours on a weekly basis. Activities so far include organised walks in the park, zumba, healthy eating & living workshops and addressing issues of women's health such as breast cancer. The operational aspect of the project is led by 3 2nd year students from Birmingham City University (Nadia, Channa and Tahbeer) and volunteers who have recently received training in community facilitation.

The project is empowering participants giving them the opportunity to be informed on issues of health, mental well-being, availability of services, self-care and learning new skills. The outcome of these activities will be reduction in isolation & marginalisation & an increase in participants' sense of belonging.
