Are you a woman with personal experience of domestic abuse? This includes women who have experienced abuse by a partner, ex-partner, or a family member as an adult or experienced abuse within the family as a child.

Are you passionate about making any positive change in your community?

Do you have an idea for a project that you would like to start?

RISE can offer training, small pots of funding and an amazing package of support based on what you need to start a new project. This support could include workshops on:

  • Project planning
  • Confidence building
  • Setting up a social enterprise
  • Marketing your project
  • How to apply for funding

In addition, you’ll meet like-minded people and find community support to help you take your project off the ground!

PLEASE NOTE: During the Covid-19 pandemic, we especially encourage applications from women who have an idea for a digital project. We're open to individual as well as group applications (up to 3 people per group).

We're currently recruiting for the Summer programme and the next training days will take place (online) on:

- Wed 29th July, Wed 5th August, Wed 12th August & Wed 19th August between 5.30pm - 7pm
