This not-for-profit company is based in Ramsgate in Kent and has an overall aim to contribute to a stronger, happier local community by breaking down barriers of language and cultural differences. It focuses particularly on working with marginalised adults, and building women’s confidences and skills to become fully-engaged citizens in all aspects of community life.
£3,740 was awarded to Beyond the Page in February 2016. This funding will contribute towards extending a pilot scheme – United Mothers – which aims to engage, support and integrate women migrants who are mothers, and whose first language is not English. The scheme works with a local school which has around a third non-white British children, and aims to improve cohesion, understanding and better support for the mothers and children involved.
