Who we are:
The Turkish Cypriot Women’s Project was set up in November 1984 to target the needs of Turkish Cypriot women.
A small group of Turkish speaking women got together to advise and support these women to help alleviate isolation and encourage them to access vital services.
The Turkish Cypriot Women’s Project has now grown into one of London’s major Turkish speaking women’s organisations that providing high quality and caring service to all Turkish Cypriot, Turkish and Kurdish women.
We have extended our services to support any woman that comes to us in need of advice and assistance.
What we do:
Services offered to people living in Hackney...
Debt Advice Project - this project provides individual debt advice and money management training to low income Turkish speaking women who live in Hackney.
Luncheon Club - We provide a weekly Luncheon Club for older Turkish speaking women to come and meet up with each other in a supportive environment. Fridays: 10.30am - 1.30pm
Volunteering - our organisation believes that women are inspirational role models and encourages them to actively participate in volunteering. Using existing own skills and experiences to volunteer helps develop and extend knowledge and build self- confidence that helps others and can help women achieve in life.
We may sometimes refer onto other agencies if we feel they are better able to meet the needs of our clients due to specific language and cultural requirements or a particular expertise.
The aims of the Turkish Cypriot Women's Project are:
- To promote the health and well-being of Turkish speaking women and their families by providing quality advice sessions, seminars and conferences.
- To promote awareness of the needs of Turkish speaking women amongst statutory/voluntary sector service providers, ensuring effective service delivery and engagement with communities.
- To provide recreational facilities for women with the objective of improving their quality of life and preventing homelessness and isolation.
- To identify and meet the developmental needs of women and their children by providing a range of services and facilities that are designed to protect and safeguard children and vulnerable adults.
- To advance the education of women by the provision of classes and training courses.
- To ensure that all services are provided within an equal opportunities framework.
