What a journey we have been on with our Stronger Together group! On the right is a beautiful illustration of our journey so far by one of our group members.
We are continuing to meet to work on our Temporary Accommodation campaign with Citizens UK, and supported by University of Greenwich, #NoticeUs.
Our group of Stronger Together Leaders are now experts in community organising, and are delivering bespoke training to a variety of organisations, with the shared aim of making our communities more inclusive and fair.
During lockdown, our Stronger Together group have co-created a film, in which we found creative ways to tell our stories, stories that can be extremely painful and hard to retell.
We are immensely proud of our short film,
Finding Strength: Our Stories of the UK Hostile Environment.
We always welcome more migrant women to join us, so please if you know anyone who would benefit from being part of our Stronger Together group please email Laura at
Our Stronger Together group is where all of our campaigns have been born from.
Where it all began in Summer 2022
We partnered with Citizens UK, supported by Near Neighbours to explore issues that affect many more people and communities like ours, particularly around housing and the immigration system. Every meeting culminated in agreeing on next actions for change with three powerful phrases at the centre:
‘speak the truth’
‘seek justice and freedom’.
During lockdown we continued to run these sessions online to continue to create positive change in ourselves and our communities.
"How powerful and strong we feel to be able to look not only inside ourselves and our group but also outside: to the wider issues we care about and are effecting many more people like us."
