Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence (Plato).

What does it take for human beings to be happy?

There is no health without Mental health.

Let us work together and let us offer hope, promise, inspiration and empowerment to reignite self belief.

Dawn is a registered charity that has been working in Harrow. It has been supporting the Mental Health and Social Wellbeing of the community in Harrow and its neighbouring boroughs for the last 26 years. It initially started as a voluntary organisation until May 2000 when it became a registered charity.

Dawn’s aims are to alleviate poverty, distress, isolation and inequality of opportunities by provision of appropriate services and facilities to support the emotional and mental health by way of professional counselling tailored to the needs of its service-users.

Dawn’s aim is to support socially isolated and marginalised women disadvantaged through prevalence of: cultural and linguistic barriers, societal norms resulting in lack of confidence, prevention of early-years educational opportunities and knowledge to navigate their way around the availability of community services.

To overcome such barriers and the disadvantages culminating in denial of access to mainstream services, we provide a multilingual, culturally sensitive women-only safe space for women to: visit readily, meet others, increase their friendships, have their concerns and issues heard and access counselling and other information, advocacy and advisory services. We offer a range of other educational, cultural and recreational facilities and, work and employment support opportunities – to improve their connectivity and participation in the community.
