About Us

A female run, volunteer led 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 stepping into who they are destined to be and move into volunteering, finding a job, getting promotion or becoming an entrepreneur.

We do this through free grant funded workshops, training, coaching, on-line support and our drop-in information and advice hub. We also work with organisations to help them be the best they can be in nurturing women’s careers. We can provide tailored support to them and their workforce.

Our goals for 2021 – 22

  • Deliver more support to BAME women across Sussex and respond to the specific needs of all women arising from covid-19
  • Expand services at our new drop-in advice centre in central Eastbourne (the ‘hub’) and move from part-time to full-time opening
  • Have a sustainable income so we can employ a hub manager to support our volunteers
  • Provide online and face to face workshops and support to women in a way that understand and supports their unique needs
  • Develop our network of women and organisations who can support us
  • Work with employers to ensure working conditions where women can thrive

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 knew 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 are now able 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.
