Website HennaAsianWomen Henna Asian Women's Group

Henna Asian Women’s Group was formed in 1982 by South Asian women, with the intention of bringing all women together regardless of their different backgrounds. Henna has been able to build on this concept by offering services which help towards integrating women, allowing them to build and strengthen links within their local community.

Henna Asian Women’s Group is a user-led organisation which aims to empower women by improving the well-being of women both mental and physical, increasing social interaction and instilling life skills to become independent in order to overcome deprivation and isolation. Our members are from diverse ethnic backgrounds which include Asian, White British, African, Afro-Caribbean, Irish, Middle Eastern and South American. We offer a range of services empowering women of different backgrounds, who may otherwise be socially isolated. They are given the space to communicate with individuals with whom they may share familiar customs, values and attributes alongside making friends with individual’s who they have never been able to mix with. Thus, helping towards changing and broadening mindsets, whilst developing social links within their local communities, and assisting towards community cohesion.

In response to the disproportionate impact of Coronavirus on BAME Communities we are increasing our telephone counselling provision to enable people to address their fears, anxieties and grief in a safe environment during this pandemic.
