Women Build!

We are very excited to announce that we have been successful in getting funding to run our project ‘Women Build!’ 

We are delivering this project free of charge for women who are un-employed. 

It’s a project for women, run by women, focused on improving our mental well-being through carpentry and woodworking, opening pathways into employment or education.

Women will:

  • learn carpentry, woodworking and DIY skills
  • meet new people and be part of a supportive group
  • learn how to improve and take care of their own mental health
  • be supported by 2 skilled female facilitators
  • feel empowered!

Women Build!

Please spread the word and let other women know about this unique opportunity to take part!
