Exciting things ahead for W2W radio
We've been having great sessions with #woman2womanradio this week, happening at The Hive Ipswich on Thursdays. So pleased to be continuing this group with the support from Cad Taylor.
Woman 2 woman Radio is a fantastic project using radio to build confidence and teach new skills to migrant, refugee and asylum seeking women.
In the last few weeks we have had Rabab Mohsen Elshrife share her incredible art with us. We have also had lots of brainstorming for their future radio show on #nobordersradio at The Hive.
This week #w2wradio used the Dictaphones for the first time to interview some of the residents on #NorwichRoad, the most diverse street in Suffolk To talk about perceptions of the street and to find out about what is important to the people in this community
We are looking forward to what the future brings for W2Wradio!
If English is your second language and you are interested in learning a fun new skill then please get in touch!
Survivors Voices Conference Success
The Survivors Voices Conference on Friday was eye-opening, inspiring and heartbreaking
We heard from inspirational speakers Bal Howard, Michelle Robinson, Emma Roscoe, James Stephens, Paige Barrs and Terri from the Domestic Abuse Champions Network
Who spoke about their stories and the brilliant work that they are doing to tackle domestic abuse and help people in need.
We were blown away by their dedication and bravery
We also had a wonderful mindfulness session from Katherine Cresswell
A big well done to Katherine Ahluwalia for hosting
And to the brilliant Stacey Runciman for organising and hosting the conference! We are SO proud and excited for what you and Vodas Training do next!
You can check out all the photos from the event, taken by our Liz Breame, on our social media pages
Mental Health Awareness Week!
The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week this year is loneliness
So decided to run a campaign focusing on the loneliness that can be experienced by mothers
The loneliness that was experienced by our CEO Kim when she was a single mum is what sparked her to create FFS and our More Than Mum programme! Inspirational!
GWYA also videod a reel talking about when they feel lonely, and how they reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them.
Check it out on our socials!
W2W Radio Show!
Woman 2 Woman Radio recorded a new show which played on IO radio on the 9th April!
Catch this show on mixcloud by clicking this link:
They interviewed special guest Stacey Runciman, who spoke about her experiences with domestic abuse and her training company: Vodas Training. She also talks about her volunteering experience with us.
