|What we do||Rerouting is a holistic initiative designed to address the challenges and risks faced by migrants women, (including irregular migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers). Established in 2017, Rerouting aims to increase the safety, mental wellbeing, and financial independence of migrant women, whilst reducing their social isolation. We offer tailored support to migrants to help them integrate into their host country. We also support migrants in detention centres. We help deportees to cope with the challenges they face returning to their country of origin – this includes detailed follow-up to assist with the individual and societal challenges of return. We do this by proving educational workshops that enable the personal development of the women and one-to-one tailored support. The workshops include wig-making, make- up artistry and Ankara upcycling (covering stationary in fabric). The workshops increase the confidence and mental health of the women and give them skills that can help them provide for themselves and their children. To date we have supported over 160 migrants.|
|What we accept||
We deliver a self-development project for migrant women, in Essex and London. All the materials will be posted to the women, who will be able to access the training via Zoom. We bring women from diverse communities together online to learn together and support one another through this difficult period. The ability to make money for themselves with a practical skill will raise women’s self-esteem and give them hope for the future, at a time when they may feel very vulnerable and afraid.
Our project trains women in skills that will boost their ability to earn money, helping them to support themselves and their children once their immigration status is resolved. We train woman in wig-making, Make up artistry, sewing and Ankara upcycling. Each of the workshops will benefit 40women each year. We also train the women on how to market their products online. The experience of coming together virtually with other women to have fun and learn new skills will build their confidence and self-esteem, improving their mental health. It will also help the women to build stronger social relationships and become less isolated.
Whilst working with the women we are able be to respond to their practical needs and refer on if we become aware of issues affecting them, such as domestic violence.
