Renaisi is creating Mindful Mamas in refugee and migrant communities
Renaisi is delighted to be working with Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver our project ‘Mindful Mamas’ in London schools. The project aims to support migrant and refugee mothers’ health and wellbeing through mindfulness.
Renaisi’s Bilingual Advisers (RBAS) are delivering Mindful Mamas in six schools, with the support of English for Speakers of Another Language (ESOL) teachers. Sessions enable mothers to learn about relaxation techniques, nutrition and exercise. RBAs will also support mothers to build their confidence, knowledge and communication skills. At the end of the programme, mothers will have the opportunity to become Mindful Mamas and facilitate schools workshops, visit assemblies and even work with individual classes.
The project also has a focus on early intervention around obesity, diabetes risks and mental health.
