The Unity Project: Women's' Maker Collective offers employability skills and confidence to vulnerable women in our community. The goals are to provide work place skills an related opportunities to women who face barriers to employment and/or social isolation. We aim to empower women to positively change their situations and improve life for their families.
It also aims to have an impact on local economic development by moving people into employment and by selling handmade wares locally. This empowers community members to improve the quality of their life and their family's life.
