Women Empowerment Programme
Our workshops aim to improve your knowledge, skills, confidence and motivation through addressing a range of topics related to the difficulties and hardships you may have faced. The workshops are designed to be as useful as possible; empowering you with practical knowledge, coping mechanisms and ways to move forward. There is some teaching, some group exercises and lots of discussion which we encourage all women attending to take part in. Workshops are four hours in duration and provided during school hours in term-time. They are designed as a series of workshops and, to get maximum benefit, it is recommended that you attend all seven.

Seek for Change offers a tailored outreach flexible service to families, single people, vulnerable people. We provide early intervention and preventative support packages to help people whose circumstances have become difficult. Support is confidential and ranges from emotional to practical support and can occur regularly or as often as needed.
We aim to connect with women with multiple and complex needs (such housing, health including mental health, financial) who are living in the community, often in hostels or ‘sofa surfing’ with friends, and work with them to address these needs to achieve more stable, positive and satisfying lives. The Outreach Team provides a service to women who would otherwise be hard for services to reach, leaving them leading chaotic and vulnerable lives which may damage not only themselves and those close to them but the wider community. In helping these women, the effect of our work radiates outwards to improve the society in which all of us live.
Who can access Outreach Service
Any woman that is disadvantaged, vulnerable, has or is suffering from domestic abuse.

Our workshops are focused around children and young people understanding and valuing their communities.
These workshops will support young people during the transition from play to youth and help build life skills in an informal and fun environment. The young people get an opportunity to take an active role in their provision which can include various activities such as drama, overcoming shyness, building self-confidence, digital media/social media, social an inter-personal skills, music, trips and sports.
These workshops will address issues faced by young people in a fun and engaging way to give them the confidence and support to move through adolescence. All staff are DBS checked and will offer a safe open environment that provides an opportunity for young people to seek support and guidance.
