Anawim Community outreach service

About ‘Anawim Community outreach service’

Community Outreach is undertaken by the Prison and Outreach Team, and also funded by the Lottery. We aim to connect with women with multiple and complex needs (such housing, health including mental health, financial) who are living in the community, often in hostels or 'sofa surfing' with friends, and work with them to address these needs so as to achieve more stable, positive and satisfying lives. The package of support that we offer is necessarily highly individualised and the work is intensive due to the level and complexity of interacting needs that the women present.

This service is part of the organisation called Anawim Women Working Together
