The aim of this project is to identify, mentor and help progress women who would like to enter or return to employment. The project is working very closely with Education and Training organisations throughout the county and the region to make available the best and most suitable opportunities for all participants.

Maria Harris, Development Worker on the project is meeting individually with any woman who would like to return to work. Maria will develop a personal progression plan with each woman. This plan will range from basic pre-development courses to degree courses at 3rd level institutions. Upon registering participants will receive one-to-one mentoring service specific to each individual women‘s needs and will receive full support and encouragement.
