The Baytree Centre is a charity working with and empowering women and girls through education and skills development programmes.
Baytree Centre is a social inclusion charity for women and girls based in the heart of Brixton, London. The women and girls who access the centre face multiple barriers to inclusion, lack of English language skills, inability to access employment opportunities, poverty, racism and discrimination, for example.
Baytree’s education and support programmes are flexible and tailor services to the individual needs of each individual. All projects for both women and girls rely on 1–1 mentoring, offering support to them in overcoming personal difficulties. Baytree’s supportive and professional atmosphere helps women and girls develop confidence and plan specific steps to build futures for themselves and their families. After spending time at Baytree, 34% of the women and girls go directly into employment and 63% proceed to further education.
