About Us

Many women across the UK are caught up in a cycle of addiction, homelessness and crime, with a lack of opportunities and often a complex history of trauma and abuse at the foundation. Even when working hard to break the cycle, women can struggle to find work and support to reach their full potential. Gifted Women works to help women break this cycle, recognising meaningful employment, training and further education as key factors in lasting change.

Women in Plymouth and Tavistock, Devon are referred to us by organisations across the city to take part in a trauma-informed group work programme of employability training and confidence building. Our group work programme is a journey of discovery and personal growth for each woman, where she can set her own individual goals and work towards them in a supportive environment where both peers and practitioners are there to cheer her on.

As a key part of our employability programme, we link up with local employers to provide meaningful work experience placements which are tailored to women?s strengths and ambitions, enabling women to put all their learning into practice and experience being part of a team.

Skilled and passionate volunteer mentors support women on a 1:1 basis through the programme and for 6 months beyond, and the aim is for women to be thriving in stable employment or be enrolled in further education upon graduating the Gifted Women programme.
