Friendship Group

The Women’s Friendship Group (WFG) is a social network where Muslim and Minority Ethnic women exchange ideas, have interesting discussions and join in social events with their group.

WFG provides you with an opportunity to make new friends, encourages you to explore broader interests, and participate in a variety of activities. The sessions have proven to help women not only with their English, increase knowledge and confidence, but also as a source of much needed social support.

Much of the support has come about through the friendships made within the group. Involvement in activities, including the creative arts are all in a safe and supportive environment and can provide participants relief from their often chaotic lives.

The group meet bi-monthly in the Southside of Glasgow and over 2018 will be looking at the following topics, as decided by the women themselves.

  • Mental Health and Wellbeing
  • Violence against Women and self-care Session
  • Relaxation Workshop
  • Empowering Women
  • Mindfulness
  • Sewing Club
  • Parliament Visit
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Eco-Living Course
  • Energy Saving Course
  • Participation in public life
  • Cancer Awareness
  • Confidence and Safety
