YOUR STORY HAS A PLACE
IN THE PAST,
BUT IT DOESN’T
DEFINE YOUR FUTURE
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.
MODULE 1 WORKSHOPS:
3 months of weekly group workshops and one-to-one sessions that aim to rebuild confidence, purpose, strength, and resilience.
MODULE 2: COACHING
EMPLOYMENT & EDUCATION
3-4 months of group and one-to-one coaching, sessions prepare participants for work placements, further education, internships, and volunteering opportunities.
MODULE 3: PLACEMENTS
Up to 4 months of one-to-one support into work placements, further education, internships and volunteering opportunities'
The support never ends. All participants, and graduates have access to The CREW survivor network. A community led by a team of survivors for quarterly activities further develop social and employability skills, peer to peer support and participation in social activities.
