About Women’s Inclusive Team

Women’s Inclusive Team (WIT) is a charity run for women and their families, by women in Tower Hamlets.

WIT was founded back in 2003 by a group of local mums who needed the space to chat and support one

another as parents and caregivers. As the needs of the mums and their families changed, so did the need

for support. The group remained informal, and as word spread it grew in size, as did the need for specialist

services to address the needs of Black Somali Women and their families.

Having begun life as the Somali Integration Team (SIT), the Women’s Inclusive Team (WIT) are a highly

regarded, influential small charity, delivering vital and life-changing services in the heart of London’s east

end. Today, WIT provides a number of activities for women and their families to access through a coherent

offer across our two hubs, the Chicksand Nursery and the Mayfield Community Hub, and supports 3,000

women annually. WIT was awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a

voluntary group can receive in the UK in 2021.

 

Our key objectives are:

– To develop skills and give opportunities to women from disadvantaged communities, to socially

and economically integrate within society.

– To preserve and improve BAME women’s access to employment pathways through improving

gaining access to information, services and training.

– To provide a link between local women and statutory agencies to effect change in services.

Our mission and core values are:

As a charity founded on the lived experience of local Black Somali Women, we continue to put this at the

heart of every activity and service we design. It’s this approach that makes us agile and able to address

the complexity of need, as we continue our lives during this era of COVID-19.

The Women’s Inclusive Team believes in creating a world where women are happy, safe and

valued,“where women and their families can reach their full potential.”
