Women like us

A multi-award winning social enterprise that reaches lone parents, carers and other parents to help them prepare for and find work they can fit around their families.

Their aim is to reduce maternal worklessness and inequality in the workplace and raise families’ living standards. The Trust awarded a three year grant of £76,561 to their project to support 150 mothers to make long-term positive changes in their lives and to their financial well-being. Participants will access a range of interventions such as one-to-one support, job brokerage, confidence building workshops and development of employability skills.

The Trust has also awarded additional funding of up to £15,000 to enable Women Like Us to run an incentive scheme to help unemployed or under employed women to enter the job market.
