What we Do
Last year in Employment Support we achieved:
Our mission is to restore futures and see an end to poverty in all its forms. We aim to transform lives through kindness, Belief and Hope, through practical support.
The first time I came here, I felt I’d let myself down. I’m really grateful and glad they are here because they treat you like a human being
How can we help?
We take practical social action that changes lives and promotes well-being.
We work alongside women to help them take control and make sustainable life choices.
We empower people with the skills and confidence to gain sustainable employment.
