Your Voice Matters

Listening Events

We know how important it is to feel heard.

After three years of regular listening sessions, we have gained an incredible amount of knowledge and insight. These sessions have been an invaluable resource for families and service providers alike.

Although our funding for regular listening events has ended, we still offer ad hoc sessions. However, we do require compensation to cover the time and delivery of the session. Additionally, we continue to offer 1-1 chats with families who need them and we encourage people to join our Facebook support group.

Events

Raham Project hosts regular online and face to face events for ethnic communities in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire and across the UK. Our events at Raham Project are designed to offer information, support and friendship through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.

Coffee and Chai

Bringing the community together to talk about everything motherhood.

The Raham Project monthly Coffee and Chai sessions are held online in our Facebook peer support group for mums.

These are casual drop-in sessions to meet other mothers, build friendships and talk about motherhood. Bring your baby, fold your washing, have a cup of tea…we don’t mind what you are doing, we would just love to connect with you!

Walk & Talk
