As part of our on going support to those being hosted we have a wonderful, qualified therapist and yoga teacher who helps us to provide free sessions for those we support. We also have links with Swindon Mind who we can refer guests to for ongoing support and to access a wealth of activities.
People who are seeking sanctuary have often been through traumatic events in their homelands and on their journeys to safety. The ongoing stresses of the asylum system in the UK on top of all this can be unbearable. Many suffer from PTSD and other mental health and physical issues.
