Our Flavour of the World Ladies were cooking Indonesian Style last week! Here is what was on the menu:

Our CYT class with the direction of Sinead from Flowers by Arrangement, made these beautiful bouquets!

In association with the Community Relations Programme, we organised a 6 week LUCED programme - Learning, Understanding, Celebrating and Enjoying Diversity!
This programme was made up of 6 migrant and 6 local women who were provided an opportunity to explore each others cultures.

The Creche have been very busy this Autumn! 

In September the children were settling back in and "Getting to know you" and in October they were preparing for "Hallowe'en and Harvest!"

Looks like lots of fun!

Global citizen alert

The crisis in Afghanistan displaced thousands, forced schools to close, and left millions of girls wondering if their right to a quality education will be upheld. On the other side of the world, children in Haiti still face school closures and devastation after an earthquake last month.

Challenges like these on top of an unfolding COVID-19 education crisis mean that children caught up in disasters, particularly girls, need our help more than ever to protect their futures.

 We are delighted to welcome our students and children back for our new term this year!

The guidance is based on the government's updated advice and health information. We really hope it will help to ensure this important guidance reaches migrant and asylum-seeking communities in the UK.

We would be happy if you could please share these with your patients, service users and your networks widely so that we reach all communities who would like this crucial information in their own language.

If you know someone who would find emails on this subject useful, then please do forward this to them.
