Development of a new group using community organising at local level

Four women, Assia, Fahiya, Foos and Amina – all of East African background came together in late 2015 with concerns and issues that they identified that exist within the community of which they lived. They had experience of building support for local women and families. This led to discussions on how best to support the community they live in. This resulted in the group decision to form as a community group. They decided to form the group, Next Step Community Hammersmith & Fulham with a view to bringing communities together through open dialogue.
