The volunteering project helps women contribute to their local communities through voluntary work. The project aims to support women getting into work. Asha encourages participation by empowering service users through confidence building sessions and information sharing workshops to provide crucial experience, increasing knowledge and skills within a field of their choice.
Volunteers have access to training, including residential trips away. Having completed training, volunteers are able to lead a group of their choice for other service users, with the support of Asha workers.
The project is fully funded by National Lottery Community Fund, to support women who have been living in the UK less than ten years.
