We're here to help at The WayfinderWoman Trust. Run by women, for women we help those who are feeling anxious and uncertain about themselves or their future. By building their self confidence and skills they then are able to challenge any barriers that face them in finding a better life.

Our priority project

Workshop recovery programme

The pandemic has had a major impact on everyone. None more so than the women we support. They have been disproportionately affected by job cuts and bearing increased responsibilities in the home. We were badly affected too with nearly two year's worth of fundraising lost and funders pairing their giving. Yet our work continues with increased demands. Women come to us crippled with anxiety and looking for help with finding food, finding jobs, finding a way forward.

We can offer that support but need to raise £5,031 to provide eight professionally facilitated workshops over the next 12 months in accessible venues. That could help more than 100 women get jobs, be able to stand up to those who take advantage of them, to transform their lives. Will you help? Make a donation now and in the comments box tell us it is for the workshop recovery programme.
