The Baytree Women’s Centre in Brixton

The Baytree Centre is a social inclusion charity (Registered Charity No 1175145) for women and girls based in the heart of Brixton, London.

Those who access the Centre face multiple barriers to inclusion, identified by the women and girls themselves as: lack of English language skills; lack of opportunities to learn in culturally appropriate settings; inability to access employment opportunities; poverty; poor housing; isolation; depression; racism and discrimination (including religious discrimination); abusive homes; family breakdown and a lack of family support and structure.
