To build a brighter future, invest in women and girls
We are a community of passionate women and together we are committed to supporting and developing the educational, economic and social welfare of women.
As a charity, we provide a range of community services to vulnerable, marginalised women especially ethnic women experiencing multiple social and economic disadvantages of homelessness, mental health, domestic and economic abuse, and those affected by the criminal justice system.
Our initiatives help women to access essential services in times of need and develop their skills to create small businesses that generate earnings and earning opportunities for women.
SHEWISE Breaking Barriers For BAME Women
Empowering and investing in women and young girls is part of the global solution for us all, now and in the future
They talk about a glass ceiling for women. I talk about Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority women facing double glazed, triple glazed, black glass ceiling which is even more difficult to break through.
“Those in positions of power need to do more to break down barriers for Black, Asian and Ethnic
Minority Women,” Chwarae Teg
Empowering Women Economically through Skills and Workforce Development
Urgent Support Needed
90% of Charities have been hard hit due to the Pandemic.
We face a huge battle in continuing to provide our support services to women facing multiple challenges in their daily lives.
We urgently need your help. Without your generous donations, we can not provide our one to one support services to women and girls. Please help us to help them.
A donation of £20 per month or just a one-time donation can change a woman's life.
Without regular funding, the work cannot continue.
Promoting Income Generation Programmes
We help marginalised vulnerable women recognise their potential and the opportunities available to them to lead a life of financial independence and dignity.
For many BAME women language, cultural barriers and social isolation prevent them from accessing skills to further their careers.
Our bilingual one-to-one, face to face and online training is a gateway for women to be self-sufficient.
By simply sponsoring a woman to attend our income generation programmes, you will help a woman to develop the necessary skills she needs to gain financial independence, helping them to exit the cycle of poverty and abuse.
Statically BAME women workforce is largely unskilled. Skills development is a key to improving employability and income-earning opportunities for women as it is the bridge between job, workforce and prosperity
Giving access to skills development training and capital for income generation activities enables them to better support their families and grants them a greater degree of autonomy in their lives.
Our training programmes enhance the livelihood opportunities for women who are in a disadvantageous position and have limited exposure to technical skills and knowledge.
