Women’s Workshops in Rochdale

As part of our Women’s workshops in Rochdale, Europia has successfully completed a 3-part Healthy Relationships Women’s workshops with 15 women throughout January 2021, in partnership with Unchained Phoenix, and funded by Rochdale Borough Council. 

Europia has also held free Women’s workshops in partnership with Be Super You that happened throughout February 2021, focussing on experiences of hate crime and discrimination specifically for the Polish community. 

Most recently Europia has worked in partnership with VESTA, an organisation that aims to empower Polish families in England and Wales. This workshop was in Polish and provided support for those in controlling and abusive relationships.
