Women of Wythenshawe (WoW)

Applications closed

WoW aims to bring women together across difference and around their shared goals and the place that they have in common to achieve better outcomes for Women in Wythenshawe. The network aims to achieve as rich and broad a diversity of members as possible including a range of ages, ethnic backgrounds, and different kinds of experiences.

This network brings low-income women into dialogue with each other to identify critical challenges that are holding them in poverty, prioritise issues that are acute or cross-cutting, and co-produce solutions with professionals with access to the power and relationships that low-income women need to achieve lasting change. 

Women of Wythenshawe’s approach is driven from the bottom up through the process of dialogue, peer exchange, confidence building, leadership development and enabling. Network partners recognise that women’s voices and experience are critical to long-term success in reducing gendered poverty and improving wellbeing among low-income women in Wythenshawe.

When it started and how long it’ll last:  September 2022 – August 2025
