Many women across the UK are caught up in a cycle of addiction, homelessness, crime and lack of opportunities across the UK. Even when they work hard to break the cycle they can struggle to find work and support to reach their full potential.
We aim to provide life changing opportunities to help break this cycle once and for all, through our successful print-based business based in Tavistock, Devon.
We do this by offering paid employment where women prepare and pack stationery orders, develop customer service skills and experience the value of being in a supportive team. Women on our programme also work towards a diploma in business administration and access life skills and mentoring for a 12-month period. On completion of the programme and equipped with skills, experience and self worth - they are then supported into long term employment or further education. This combined approach helps women on our programme reach their potential, live a fulfilling life and contribute to their community.
Every purchase you make enables us to continue and grow this work. You can also join the journey by following us on instagram and signing up to our fortnightly journal.
"In my recovery from addiction I'd become a bit of a recluse, so working here I've learnt that I am valid as part of a team, I can relearn things & use my old skills. I've learnt that I am able."
We believe that women have incredible power to lift each other up and we’re grateful to have a group of amazing volunteer mentors on hand to help empower women to reach their potential. Over the course of each woman’s time with us, they will be able to access mentoring focusing on specific areas including; employability, money management and confidence.
At present, we can only accept referrals to our programme from the following organisations:
