Request from Dunkirk Refugee Women's Centre

Frances Timberlake, volunteer co-ordinator of a women refugee support organisation in northern France, is very interested in finding out more about women's workshops that women's projects have run. Frances says "A large part of our work in France is developing practical activities to build skills and confidence amongst the displaced women we work with, particularly more therapy-style activities as many of the women are suffering from trauma and depression as a result of their journeys. We are really interested in learning from other groups who run workshops and activities for women in different contexts, as we so often find ourselves stuck for ideas and resources!"
