African Women's Forum

The African Women’s Forum (AWF) was founded in 1995 to provide opportunities for social contact, communication and emotional support for African women in Portsmouth, directly replicating the support that would have been provided by closely related women in African societies.
AWF also works with local communities and organizations to increase inter-cultural understanding between Africans and the wider community.

The African Women's Forum's main aim is to provide opportunities for mutual communication by having social contact as well as emotional support for African Women residing in Portsmouth.
