The Rotunda Women's Hub is a place where women can seek support to enable them to make steps to engage with further education, training, voluntary work or seek employment. However, we are aware this is not always immediately possible due to the social, emotional or financial barriers that may be in place preventing a woman moving forward in her life.
Each woman who is eligible to attend the programme will be offered personalised bespoke support from our Women's Hub Coordinator Jane, who uses the GROW coaching model to identify the steps needed to achieve an aim or goal, these steps can be very small. 'Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step'.
These are examples of how attending the Women's Hub has supported individual women.
"This course has built my confidence in applying for work and it’s also made me aware of my strengths and abilities. I’ve had a long period of unemployment and this course has encouraged me to go back into the job market. My course co-ordinator has been very encouraging and provided friendship and support when I really needed it. Also this course made everyone feel safe and comfortable when talking about personal matters.”
"The Women's hub has given me valuable experience since I have started. The main reason I started this course was to improve my English speaking skills so I can improve my confidence & find a good job. I have got a dedicated coach, who always creates a pleasant, friendly atmosphere during the sessions, she also helps me to find the most effective way to achieve my goals. In my case it is voluntary work, where I have the opportunity to talk to people and gain confidence. We visited local employers and voluntary organisations and I started volunteering at a community café. We are going to practice job interview skills and do job market research. This hub is a very helpful for women, who want to work but have difficulties.”
