Saathi House was established in 1977 in response to the emerging problems of immigration and new arrivals into the Ladywood area of Birmingham. Although no geographical limit is imposed on its activities, the Charity was originally established (as the Saint James Language Project) to address the extramural educational needs of younger members of the growing immigrant communities of Aston, Lozells and Perry Barr.
All of our projects and activities fall under three overarching means of self-empowerment:
Shaping our communities
Saathi House is a community-based women’s centre, providing a safe and supportive environment for all of our members. We strive to empower women through creative arts, art, community activities, and visual arts. We believe in the power of art to help people express themselves, break down barriers, and foster a sense of connection and belonging.
No matter your background or experience level, there’s something for everyone at Saathi House. We invite you to explore our vibrant and welcoming community, and join us in our mission to empower and support women of all ages and walks of life.
At Saathi House, we strive to provide women with the necessary tools to reach their full potential.
Through a series of productive programs and workshops, we aim to help women develop their skills, knowledge, and confidence.
We foster an environment of empowerment through broad educational skills, understanding local democracy, digital literacy, community cohesion and geographical awareness.
By providing a safe and supportive space, we hope to support women in their journey of self-development and personal growth.
Saathi House is a women's centre dedicated to supporting the physical and mental wellbeing of local women. Our mission is to create a safe and supportive environment for women to get active, socialise, and learn improve their health and wellbeing.
We offer a range of activities from cycling and boxing to netball and walking; as well as coffee mornings and other social events focusing on good mental and physical health.
Our aim is to create a vibrant community for women to come together and make positive changes in their lives.
