Roshni Ghar’s groups and activities

What Service Users Say

I enjoy coming to Roshni Ghar because it gives me a chance to talk to the other women and I particularly enjoy the ‘Cook n Eat’ sessions and the Art & Craft activities

T. Karmar

I was feeling lonely and ‘down’ whilst ill at home and was wondering how I’m going to get better. Coming to Roshni Ghar has helped me as I talk to other women and take part in activites, engaging in the English classes has built my confidence. At Roshni Ghar I feel calm and relaxed.

T. Akhtar

It has  been nearly two year I have been coming to Roshni Ghar. I find this group very useful for my emotional, physical and mental health

S. Sultana

I really enjoy coming to Roshni Ghar because we do a lot of calm and enjoyable activities and also we get a chance to make new friends and interact with them. I also like coming here because it gets me out of my comfort zone

A. Khan

I really enjoyed the sessions overall, they helped improve my cardiovascular endurance and I learnt loads of new techniques. I also thought about what I was eating and I realised why my mood changed.
I never would have thought I would have enjoyed these sessions as much as I did. I loved the sessions and would love to do similar things in the future.

S. Haseen

Roshni Ghar has inspired me to do moer activities and made me feel confident. I got to know a lot of the girls there.
