ACH have received a grant towards delivering the Advocating for Myself programme. The part-course, part-peer support group will combine Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based exercises with a focus on improving self-awareness and wellbeing life skills, aiming to improve mental health, resilience, advocacy skills and personal agency of refugees in Bristol.

“ACH is delighted to find out our Advocating for Myself course received the Health and Wellbeing Grant. The course will empower people from a refugee background, using fun teamwork, gratitude and resilience activities. We hope this will increase confidence, happiness and integration in the communities we work with.”
