Women Centred Working with women migrants

Over six years WomenCentre worked on Connecting Opportunities, a project that worked with new migrants in West Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire to develop people’s skills and opportunities to find work and be part of the local community, funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
Connecting Opportunities worked with 1868 participants (98 nationalities) and employed 151 members of staff and worked alongside 250 volunteers.

WomenCentre worked with women migrants and with nine partner organisations* to provide training and advice about women centred ways of working. We supported the design and delivery of regional services that better respond to the distinct experiences and needs of women migrants.
