Strong Women is a project which equips women with life skills and helps them to develop self-confidence, resilience and the decision-making capabilities they need to deal with their day-to-day lives.


Following the course, participants are encouraged to

move on to other opportunities whether this be

education, training, further support groups, voluntary

roles or into work. They are also encouraged to enrol

for the ‘Stronger Women’ follow-on course and use

their developing skills to the benefit of the community.


Workshops are held for one morning every week for

six weeks. The programme draws on positive

psychology which helps to identify and use strengths

rather than focusing on dysfunction. It is particularly

suited to encouraging and engaging women within

disadvantaged communities.


Signposting takes place during the last session. This

gives the participants opportunity to identify their next

steps and ensure a longer-lasting impact to the course.
