The Sophie Hayes Foundation looks forward – renewing confidence, purpose and employability.

By taking best practice in coaching, facilitation and training, we support women survivors in a bespoke and creative way through group workshops, one to one coaching, vocational voluntary & work placements, access to training, and formal education. 

Currently in London and the south, Birmingham and the West Midlands, Manchester and the north, the organisation aims to support more survivors to rebuild independent, purposeful lives. 

Our programme is designed to help women survivors:

Walk away from fear and become independent members of society

Become employable with new skills and experiences

Gain practical knowledge from writing CVs, to interview skills and digital training

Build their confidence through coaching and career planning

Access new opportunities for studying, internships, volunteering and work placements 

Join The Sophie Hayes Foundation support network of survivors and community events

To date The Sophie Hayes Foundation has placed women in: Hospitality, Social Care, Health (NHS), Finance, Retail, Light Industry, Entrepreneurs, Fashion and Design, Community colleges and volunteering opportunities.
