Join us on a Journey around the globe!
We celebrate the diversity, traditions and cultures of women living across Manchester – and around the globe.
How we started
Our Multicultural Women’s Wellbeing Group is a wellbeing group for BAME (Black Asian, Minority, Ethnic) women from around the world that meets weekly. We meet weekly to support your wellbeing through group meetings, 1:1 peer support , connect and create new friendships.
The Multicultural Wellbeing Women’s Group started as a grassroots community group set up by Sol Diaz on the 8th March 2016, celebrating the universally known International Women’s Day. Sol said: “I chose it as a significant day to celebrate women all over the world.”
What do we do?
The Multicultural Wellbeing Women’s Group started with “A Journey Around the World”, an creative idea inviting women to join and start conversations of our journeys, to talk about ourselves, share culture, our experiences, awareness and self care.
We celebrate cultural diversity and integration promoting positive wellbeing, building resilience, friendship and peer to peer support. We work very hard to reduce the challenges of inequalities and stigma that are present in some communities.
Member quote, “attending the group is the highlight of my week, I look forward to every Wednesday to socialise and meet new people while learning something new”
We talk about our group Home, because it nurtures a sense of belonging, inclusion, social cohesion and a place where we feel at home.
We provide different activities and workshops of health and wellbeing such as, cooking, happiness and wellbeing workshops, 1:1 support, wellbeing group support, dance, yoga, meditation and mindfulness, and Arts and crafts.

Celebrating culture and wellbeing
Culture and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do. We improve wellbeing by meeting weekly in our wellbeing workshops creating positive social networks, celebrating culture, heritage and diversity building confidence and resilience and promoting social inclusion among multicultural women in the community.
We are an ethnic minority group in Manchester, England with services in Sale and Timperley. (Trafford)
We have been teaching women English Language skills since September 2015, and found there was a demand from participants for more development surrounding wellbeing, crafts and other social activities.
From the regular meetings of the Group, female members decided that there was so much more they could do for each other and for other women, that would meet identified but unfulfilled needs of the community.
ESOL programmes are so valuable for ethnic minorities new arrivals to the UK and to those participants who are in the communities and had a little confidence and / or the initiative to access ESOL to improve their lives.
We support women for whom English is not their first language to develop their skills to enable them to lead fulfilling and inclusive lives.
Through our delivery of Creative ESOL lessons we teach daily community activities so that you can reach independence, have an active voice in the community, learn English and have fun while making new friends and learning English in everyday life.
Community ESOL empowers students to learn and improve their English skills in a community setting, enhancing communication skills and growing independence.

We meet every Wednesday in term time between 11am and 1pm at Coppice Library and Wellbeing Centre.
