Breaking down isolation among asylum seeker women in Glasgow
Our ‘Bump or Baby Bus Passes’ are 10 week bus passes for asylum seeker women who are heavily pregnant or have recently had a baby. The bus passes, which can start 7 weeks before or after the birth, can make a big difference to women who often have more appointments and meetings during this time, but will find walking especially difficult or tiring.
The bus passes also help women to get out to socialise and meet with their support networks at this time, which is incredibly important for the mental health and well being of new mothers.

If you are an asylum seeker in Scotland who is pregnant or who has recently had a baby, you can apply to us for the 10 week bus pass. The bus pass can start 7 weeks before or after the birth of your child.
