A charity that has run projects helping to give a voice to the experience of refugee women in the UK has showcased its services to the wider community.

Health Pyschology Management Organisation Service (HP-MOS), offers psychological, social well-being, mental and physical health services to residents across Newham, Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge.

Charity founder Mary MaClean told listeners at the Unviersity of east London (UEL) Docklands Campus, Silvertown, on Wednesday, October 2, about their work identifying individual experiences of refugee women in the UK.

She higlighted the importance of giving a voice to the vulnerable in London’s communities, adding: “There are people within the community that are not having their stories told. These groups of people are being given the opportunity for their voices to be heard.

“Nothing could be more powerful than that. To see the need to reach out to people and hear what their stories are and not have them told for them.”
