About Organisation

WAND UK is a London wide volunteer-led women’s charity that helps women and girls in isolated and excluded communities through outreach services and regular networking events.

We support vulnerable women, including refugees, asylum seekers, migrants, lone parents, unemployed, low-income families, and domestic violence survivors some with long term health conditions many of whom may feel isolated from or find it difficult to access mainstream services. We empower women to become agents for their own change, by instilling in them a sense of belonging, helping them to see their purpose and in turn, ending the cycle of isolation and economic disadvantage.

WAND works at two levels at the individual and at Group.

Services offered to the individual include, information and general advice, support and advocacy, training and education, one to one practical support, volunteering into jobs and projects on mental health, sexual health, domestic violence, Food support, beauty and self-care, gardening, girls' group project, reflexology, small financial grants, warm space, HAF, educational and cultural trips

At Group level, we encourage building partnerships with organisations with similar aims, provide outreach sessions for organisations and run a monthly Happy Healthy Family Club for peer support, while disseminating 3 wellbeing messages.
