Our Vision & Mision



B&D SWA’s vision is to become a resource centre and hub for women in the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham and living in surrounding boroughs. We want to be part of a community that enables individuals to make informed choices maintain good health and achieve their potential regardless of their health, education and social circumstance.


“Our vision is to set up an information and resource centre which has community café facilities, and offers services to improve the health and wellbeing of women, and tackles the many problems and issues raised by health inequalities, FGM, unemployment and poverty.“



Our mission is to improve the quality of life for women and their families, and to promote community cohesion and integration to wider society in Barking and Dagenham and surrounding boroughs.

We hope to fulfil this by continuing to provide practical, social, educational and community support to those that are living in poverty and illness, particularly within minority ethnic communities in Barking and Dagenham and surrounding boroughs.
