In 2023, Broxtowe Women’s Project is committed to creating more connections between businesses, community organisations, charities, and people through our Connected project.
Using funding from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust, Nottingham’s Police and Crime Commissioner and Broxtowe Borough Council, we’ll use our position as a respected charity to bring people and organisations together, making creative connections that allow us to make a bigger difference than we ever could apart.
Connected to businesses
We’ll be working closely with new and existing partners including local businesses – organising networking events and opportunities that allow them to make a difference in their communities.
For example, we connected with Eastwood business, Two Sweet Sisters, who provided us with sweets and treats for events including our film premiere, the launch of our partnership with Notts FA, and our International Women’s Day event in 2023.
We have worked closely with the team from Lear Corporation who have supported us through regular food donations and at internal and external networking events.
Connected to our community
We can make a bigger difference to more people who need our help by coming together and pooling time, space and resources.
Our community connections led to two events with the Eastwood Memory Cafe. We visited the cafe to do a workshop with the people there and hosted a gardening event too. Working with the memory cafe in this way raised awareness of Domestic Abuse in this population and allowed people to make new connections with different people.
Connected to people
As a small charity, we’re always aware of the huge difference one individual can make to the lives of others. Our dedicated volunteers give up time each week to deliver much-needed donations, and our Trustees bring their life experience to support our work.
Helen is a volunteer who works as a Parish Nurse in Eastwood. She attends our regular coffee mornings, sharing her knowledge and advice on health issues.
If you’re a local business, community organisation, or individual and you’d like to be involved in our Connected project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
