Women who’s voices are not being heard in Eastbourne and Wealden will soon get help to change that thanks to funding from the Big Lottery Fund.
The £9,962 award from Awards for All will be used to run a series of dynamic workshops in Eastbourne and Uckfield that will help women be better able to express their opinions, be more confident in their decision making and more willing to step outside their comfort zone. Women will be more aware of their qualities and thus approach potential employment with more self-assurance and express themselves more easily.
They will then be supported to design, organise and run their own events to support other women in expressing their views about the issues they’re finding and what they can done about it. The activities will also link to the AQA unit award scheme so women will gain certificates of achievement which can be used on CVs and will also boost their confidence.
The project will be run over the next 12 months and anyone from Eastbourne or Wealden that is interested in joining the workshops can get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
