Mothers and toddlers


Mother and toddlersThe SWCG (Sangat Woman & Children’s Group) is a long standing established group that is geared towards catering for and addressing the needs of women within the community. Their needs and desires are met in a various ways such as classes, workshops, open days etc. The group started life as a mother and toddler group which has since become one of the most popular classes at the centre but is now playing a multi-functional role.

We deal with issues such as health awareness, unemployment, self-development, education, good parenting and any other issues that the women identify as being of importance to them. We use a variety of approaches to best suites the specific issue such as healthy meals (in partnership with APCT), workshops (recently activities covered driving theory test, head massage and breast feeding), the job club which assists those people finding employment and accredited courses which are growing in popularity week by week.
