All Saints and Scotlands Participation project

Working exclusively in two local neighbourhoods, this project supports women to become involved in community life.

As a result of the project over 200 women have become active members of their community, including women in both neighbourhoods who have formed parents’ groups to work with their local children’s centres.

 

Starting with success: a unique approach that puts women in control

The All Saints and Scotlands Project takes a distinctive approach to working with women. Developed by Participation Officer Bev Harvey, project workshops have been designed to give women complete control over their own learning journey.

Workshops begin with a review of each woman’s successes and skills before offering a range of creative activities for women to work on.  As well as building confidence and discovering hidden talents, the relaxed creative atmosphere provides the perfect opportunity for participants to explore new ways of getting involved in local life through volunteering, employment and community involvement.

Fun, challenging and demanding, the approach used in the All Saints and Scotlands Participation Project is proving to be a resounding success.

“Today’s session was brilliant … I’m looking forward to next week.” Emma

“I’d like to be an inspiring mother, to find a job, to help women who are victimised.”

Using the All Saints and Scotlands Participation Project as a springboard, Bev has been successful in securing an Arts Council grant to recruit local artists to work with women and their families to document their dreams and realities of living in the Scotlands.
