Baytree Centre

< Back to directory


The Baytree Centre is a social inclusion charity for women and girls based in Brixton, London.  Those who access the Centre face multiple barriers to inclusion, identified by the women and girls themselves such as lack of English language skills; lack of opportunities to learn in culturally appropriate settings; inability to access employment opportunities; poverty; poor housing; isolation; depression; racism and discrimination (including religious discrimination); abusive homes; family breakdown and a lack of family support and structure.
The services developed for clients focus on education, training, employment, health and social support measures in order to enhance confidence and self-esteem and to promote aspirations, community cohesion and cultural harmony.
Baytree’s education & support programmes are flexible and tailor services to the individual needs of users. 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 beneficiaries go directly into employment and 63% proceed to further education.

Additionally, they have The PEARL project which offers women the opportunity to learn English through low-cost ESOL provision.
