ACP WomenSupporting Community Aspirations

ACP Women Together was established by local women to increase local involvement, improve access to services and promote their interests. We offer support at our local centre enabling women to participate in activities whilst forming meaningful social relationships with each other. Over the years we have made a positive contribution to hundreds of local women in Sparkbrook.

Women in TransitionImage 03

Women In Transition is an exciting new project funded by Big Lottery to help change lives of local women through the engagement of activities.

We mentor women to raise their confidence, build inner self belief and work with them to overcome personal barriers. Our goal is to lead women in to positive progression, growth and personal achievement in all aspects of their life.

How You Can Help

Image 03Our Volunteering Programme involves local women giving a few hours a week of their valuable time to their local community whilst building their skills.

The volunteers are supported in their learning and gradually building their confidence into employment. A successful scheme as 18 of our 22 registered volunteers have gained employment.
