COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY LEARNING HUB
In 2018 Trafford recorded 4,800 women reporting domestic abuse. The Collaborative Women Community Learning HUB supported a significant number of women through the HUB, who previously felt unsupported. Therefore, the vision for the HUB is to contribute to the challenges of inequality faced by women in Trafford and build upon our achievements to empower women through learning.
Collaborative Women UK has helped change the landscape for women in Trafford and beyond, creating a different narrative with women from different backgrounds to have a voice and self belief to empower themselves.
Collaborative Community Learning HUB was specifically designed to provide a safe non judgemental learning environment for women marginalized in communities because of lived experience from gender focus abuse, homlessness and isolation due to ill health.
The HUB offers women 18 plus access to a plethora of learning experiences and opportunities to improve their psychological emotional physical and financial aspirations. Creating an environment that stimulates, and promotes change behaviour through different learning experiences which leads to greater confidence, self worth, and enables better mental health and well-being outcomes. The core ethos for the HUB is to encourage peer group learning amongst and it’s never too late to learn to improve individuals social, financial, and psychological independence.
The increased interest from agencies and individuals has helped develop our programmes to provide more structured projects with specific learning outcomes. For the duration of this Corporate Plan Collaborative Women Community Learning aims to develop a strong learning framework offering a mixture of structured and unstructured learning opportunities

- Encourage self love and aspirations

In 2020 due to the Pandemic we had to switch our Workshops to be delivered digitally via ZOOM. We won a couple of grants to be able to provide Chromebooks and WIFI Dongles to those who needed them so we could still provide our services to the community.
