Sisters Only is an organisation that recognizes the challenges that come with being a Muslim in the UK. With the absence of faith and cultural support services, this leaves Muslim women with a lack of support systems that are compatible with their religious beliefs.
Sisters Only was created to rebuild a community that provides a safe space for Muslim women, support and an environment where new friendships can be formed through Islam.
Our aim is to support Muslim women from all demographics. We want this organisation to be a strong support system where they can seek advice and help in areas such as housing, education and employment and rehabilitation services.
The funds raised will contribute to the following projects:
1. Floating Support Service :
Our floating support services help customers with a range of different needs and situations. We aim to support all Muslim women from all demographics and ages with support needs for a minimum of 3 months and maximum of 12 months depending on the customers support needs. These support needs are identified through our referral and assessments.
Our floating support services include:
Accessing local services
Developing life skills
Building and strengthening relationships
Employment, education and training
2. Monthly Sisters Circle
Our monthly sisters circle take place once a month. The circles encourage Muslim women to come together and socialize with one another whilst learning about Islam. Updates on our next Monthly Sisters Only Circle will be available on on our Instagram page www.instagram.com/sistersonly.co.uk
3. #GIRLPOWER Events
Girl Power Events are hosted by the Sisters Only team. The events include panel discussions, topics, food, entertainment and socializing.
The purpose of the hashtag ‘Girl Power’ was created to empower women, to celebrate our strengths and to not be defined by our weaknesses. Girl Power encourages women to be confident, achieve and overall maintain a positive relationship with Islam.
