Employability 2019/2020 – Birmingham

Supporting women affected by domestic abuse to enter or re enter the workplace.

10th May + 13th – 24th May 2019

We know the pathway towards financial independence can often be a key turning point for women who have experienced abuse. This not only provides financial security but also increases confidence, develops resilience and creates wider support networks to allow women to take control of their lives.

There can be many barriers to accessing employment and this programme seeks to adopt a holistic approach by providing a ‘wrap round’ service to further support for women to gain realistic employment opportunities.  Ideal candidates could be women who meet the criteria and have experienced abuse but lack work experience, are seeking to find employment, are isolated and would like to develop their skills, confidence and reduce isolation, those who are at risk of harmful practices such as forced marriage and where employment would help reduce further risk.

This free 2 week employability programme is open to women in the Birmingham area who have been affected by abuse and are seeking to enter or re enter the workplace. We particularly encourage applications from BAME women, lone parents and the long term unemployed.
