About Four Brave Women

Four Brave Women operate a refugee-run café where every 8 weeks a new group of refugees take over the kitchen and run their own small business to earn a sustainable and independent income whilst being supported in various ways such as mentoring and advice. The aim is to work through the barriers that refugees face when starting work in a new country and providing them with the support to start, operate and hopefully grow their small business.  The café is a wonderful place to grab some delicious food, hang out with awesome people, and build a strong connection to your community.
