Mother and Toddler Group for Asylum Seekers and Refugees


This project consists of organising a weekly group for asylum seeker and refugee mothers and their under 5’s. It is held at The Hyde Childern's Centre once a week for 2 hours and it provides them with a supportive learning environment.

The mums learn English through reading, singing, activity, craft and free play sessions with their babies and toddlers. A separate ESOL lesson whilst the children are given a snack and entertained by volunteers is included.

The group’s focus  will be on educating the mums on areas such as learning through play, accessing library services, reading bed time stories, singing nursery rhymes in English, healthy eating for toddlers, dental hygiene, applying for nursery places etc.

External guests include a child nutritionalist whose 5 week programme would be of enormous benefit to the group.


The group runs on Tuesdays 10:00am -12:00pm (during term time only)

Venue: The Hyde Children's Centre, Hyde Crescent, NW9 7EY

A Message From Our Patron

Last year I visited the Barnet Refugee Service, and met the trustees, the staff and some of the volunteers and clients.  I was moved and impressed by the real difference BRS has made to so many lives.
