The U-turn womens project – this month’s Charity of the Month – plays a vital role in the empowerment of women. many of the women that come to U-turn have suffered abuse from an early age. This is most cases has left a void not only emotionally but within their education. The U-turn project offers many programmes aimed to close this void, such as the second chance programme.
This programme makes a real difference to the lives of the women that the project works with. Giving them the opportunity to gain qualifications that may have passed them by,. Through this programme the women are not only gaining new skills and qualifications but an encouraging boost of self esteem – both of whcih will help towards future employment opportunities and generally a happier and more fulfilled lifestyle.
This programme was made possible by working in partnership with Raines Secondary School who continues to support this project with guidance given in the planning and preparation of all the material.
