What we're trying to do

We are trying to support marginalised women from different ethnic and racial backgrounds including  asylum seekers, refugees & migrants.

To train 30 women with no recourse to public funds (NRPF’s) with skill training to be social entrepreneurs and earn a living for themselves and the family.

We want to run a free employability skills training programme, to help women gain the skills and confidence to move into work. The 4 week programme, open to women being supported by local charities, covers a range of workplace skills including admin, customer service, events, social media and marketing, as well as learning about Volunteering.

Trainees shadow our team members to gain experience of being in a workplace and to help build confidence. We also provide support to develop CVs, job applications and interview practice.

Why this is so important

These sessions will help women to develop personal and professional skills to increase their confidence and  benefit their wellbeing. This will also give them quality certificates which will allow them to work in different areas of society, including people who may be at higher risk. We would alongside our partner organisations, support women into meaningful voluntary and paid employment opportunities.

How it's going to happen

By donating you would be not just helping a woman to educate but to make her independent to look after her own and family needs. By helping them to educate with skill training we can empower the women in need (WIN) to build their confidence, identity and self worth and reach their personal potential to work. 

Thank you and we hope you can donate and help our project. No donation is too small for us! On behalf of Community Women's Circle we thank you all.
