Our project introduced peer support for Syrian woman living in West Dunbartonshire and give them the confidence to develop connections with people in their local areas. This is based on the learning and good practice from the ‘Moments of Freedom’ project developed over the past 4 years in partnership with Syrian women who resettled in Clydebank through the VPRS. The peer support approach also enabled women from West Dunbartonshire to gain more skills and experience.
The project was developed across two concurrent strands. Each strand took an integral element of the successful ‘Moments of Freedom’ approach to extend its influence and reach geographically.
