What We Stand for

Beacon Of Hope

Asylum seekers face several challenges in their new countries of residence such as isolation, language barrier, financial hardship due to unemployment just to mention a few. All these challenges pose a major threat to the well-being and mental health of assylees and refugees especially their mental.

Women and their children who relocate with under unfavourable conditions in their home country are more likely to face such challenges. They tend to feel isolated and alone as they no longer have the sources of support such as close relatives and friends they had in their home. By nature, humans are social beings and depend on healthy relationships for support in diverse areas of our lives.

We at Creative Minds have saddled ourselves with the responsibility of supporting female refugees and asylum seekers in our town, Middlesbrough. We have made it our number one mission is to be a pillar of support and beacon of hope to asylee and refugee women across the town.
We are fostering boldness, confidence and education among these women by building healthy relationships and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Our team develop creative ways to engage these women in activities which help to give a sense of belonging and encourages women to come together to build a health and strong community.
