About Us

As a volunteer led registered charity, we help women find better lives by building their self-confidence and skill sets. They can then challenge any barriers that prevent them from volunteering, finding a job, getting promotion or running a business.

We do this through free or low cost grant funded workshops, training, coaching, seminars, conferences and on-line support. We also work with organisations to help them be the best they can be in creating an environment where women can thrive. We can provide tailored support to them and their workforce.

  • Our goal is to deliver more support to women and, in East Sussex, to open a 5-days a week female friendly drop-in centre in Eastbourne (the ‘hub’) where women can get individual advice and support from trained empathic staff and volunteers.
  • Our goal is to run regular surgeries at the hub on topics women have requested – all delivered in a way that acknowledges the issues women are facing and supports their emotional needs.
  • Our goal is to set up a network of women and organisations who can support us with this work.

Our priority project

Women in Lockdown

During Covid-19 lockdown we were hearing from women that they were becoming increasingly isolated, anxious and lonely. We know that people are reporting increased mental health problems and so we wanted to do something that would give purpose and focus whilst helping to improve women’s health and wellbeing. Women in Lockdown: stories by and about women during Covid-19 was born. Over 100 stories have been submitted totalling over 300 pages.

We want to publish, in high quality materials, the Women in Lockdown stories so every contributor can have their own free copy to keep for future generations and historians.
