Women who’ve experienced Domestic Abuse can access support, training and opportunities that prepare them to get back to work through our Within Reach programme, launched on 1 August 2021.
Through Within Reach, funded through an an ESF Community Grant, BWP is looking forward to supporting women to gain confidence, increasing their self-esteem and self-worth through bespoke sessions that lead towards voluntary, employment, or entrepreneurial opportunities.
Colette Byrne, BWP’s Chief Executive, said: “Often, women in abusive relationships become separated from their friends, family, and work by partners who seek to control every aspect of their lives; inhibiting employment and education, and ensuring that they become financially dependent on them. Many women we support haven’t worked during or as a result of their abuse. They have reduced self-belief and lack the confidence to take steps towards re-joining the labour market.
“Through the ‘Within Reach’ programme we’re looking forward to supporting women to gain confidence, increasing their self-esteem and self-worth through bespoke sessions that lead towards voluntary, employment, or entrepreneurial opportunities. Every step a survivor of Domestic Abuse takes towards work, is one step closer to the sustainable economic and personal independence they deserve.”
This funding is for women who are Domestic Abuse survivors and are unemployed or economically inactive across Broxtowe. If you wish to access this support, you do not have to have accessed BWP’s services to be eligible. You just have to have the right to live and work in the UK, and be a survivor of Domestic Abuse.
