Who is @PRESENCE Coffee Mornings For?
@PRESENCE Coffee Morning is perfect for women who are…

  • New to the area
  • Wanting to meet and socialise with women from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds
  • Looking for volunteering opportunities within the local community

Aims of the group:
Provide an informal setting where women can discuss (informally) sensitive issues surrounding women’s health and wellbeing (domestic violence, mental health, racism etc.)

  • Encouraging integration amongst women from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, especially women who have migrated to the area from outside of the UK
  • Provide a safe and central location for women to meet and socialise, especially those who are socially isolated and alone
  • Increase social skills for women who do not speak English as a first language
  • Allows other government / community organisations a chance to come and engage with women (especially from the BME community)
  • Allows an opportunity to survey women to find out what other services or facilities could be introduced to make them feel safe within Crawley
