DAWLIFFE HALL EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION

What We Do

DHEF offers activities for women and girls of all ages.
DHEF offers activities for women and girls of all ages. For young people aged between 8 and 16 we run youth centres. For university students we have university residences with opportunities to attend additional enrichment activities. For young professional women we provide personal development and leadership activities. For women and families we promote family enrichment programmes, home management programmes, and family events such as carol concerts and barbecues. We have a Conference Centre in Glasgow which hosts many cultural events. In addition to taking care of the body we endeavour to help care for the soul with spiritual support to help people find God in their everyday lives.

Youth

We have three youth centres: Tamezin Club in London, Hillcrest Club in Purley and Hazelwood Club in Glasgow.

The Clubs are run by parents and volunteers and offer attractive and exciting activities tailored to different age groups, but all have the same aim – to promote worthwhile interests and skills, a sense of personal responsibility and social awareness. All the activities and formation aim at helping each girl to grow in maturity, develop her talents, make and strengthen genuine friendships, foster concern for the needs of others and do all she can to excel. Every girl who wants, has the opportunity of personalised mentoring sessions so that she can develop a healthy self-esteem and the will power to always give of her best.

Students

We are inspired by St John Henry Newman’s idea of University as a time to develop a “broad, well-rounded education, which teaches students to think and to reason and to compare and to discriminate and to analyse.”

We work with students in the following DHEF centres:

Ashwell House Students’ Hall of Residence

Ashwell House in North London is a female only University Hall of Residence situated in an historic and convenient location in a residential side street close to Old Street station, with great public transport links to all of London’s Universities. It is a friendly and welcoming hall, with high-standard, catered accommodation: a home away from home. Residents are encouraged and supported to seek excellence in their studies, to use their professional expertise in the service of others, and to see their work in the larger context of a flourishing life.

Women & Families

Happy people come from happy families, and we advocate that the family is the foundation of society. Raising a family and making a home is an art and a science that requires a specific skillset. We promote a range of courses to help acquire these skills and also encourage centres to run family events where people can have fun as well.

Each centre has the same ethos and welcoming atmosphere where everyone feels at home and where anyone can contribute with their ideas to compiling the programmes of activities.
