The Baytree Centre is an educational charity for women and girls, based in the heart of Brixton, south London.
Inspired by Catholic Social Teaching in response to local needs, they address poor housing conditions, homelessness, lack of language and basic skills, trauma due to difficult migration journeys and other barriers that can prevent our 600+ women and girls and their families from thriving.
The services that the centre have developed with and for their clients focus on education, training, and employability skills to enhance confidence and self-esteem, promote aspirations and opportunities, and improve the lives of migrants and refugees.
Baytree’s education and support programmes are flexible and tailor services to the needs of the people living locally. All projects combine education with one-to-one mentoring. Social mobility mentoring gives women and girls the tools to identify and overcome their specific challenges and improve their life chances. Baytree’s relational and professional approach ensures women and girls recognise their own worth and take concrete steps to build a bright future for themselves, their families and their communities.
