YOUR STORY HAS A PLACE
IN THE PAST,
BUT IT DOESN’T
DEFINE YOUR FUTURE

OUR PROGRAMME

Everyone has the right to freedom, the right to live, and the right to learn. We’re here to help women survivors shape their future and begin the steps to complete sustainable freedom.

 

Our unique programmes have been designed to support women by sharing essential life skills that will help with confidence building, followed by essential skills development for future employment and education. All of which are important for living independently, finding work  and remaining free.

 

Over a 12-month period, our programmes help survivors to develop various skills through in person and remote group workshops, one to one sessions, remote learning, group coaching, work placements, access to training, and formal education.
