Connect & Collect

Connecting migrant and refugee parents to their wider community to improve their wellbeing

Renaisi's Bilingual Advisers are running a new wellbeing project in six Hackney schools. The project Connect & Collect aims to improve the wellbeing and resilience of migrant and refugee families. This is achieved by promoting wellbeing activities, creating a sustainable support network, and creating a safe space in school where parents can integrate across languages. The Bilingual Advisers will work collaboratively with parents to design and pilot their own wellbeing activities. A Hackney Health Passport system will allow parents with at least 5 stamps to attend a family event organised by the Bilingual Advisers. Every time a parent attends a workshop, they win a stamp. If they lead a workshop, they earn two stamps. This is a way of encouraging parents to develop their confidence and leadership skills. The activities will explore the themes of connecting with yourself, connecting with your child, and connecting with your community.
