EVA-FEM

EVA-FEM has been designed to promote independence, competences and different skills of young females from the wider community. We aim to empower women who are disabled, or from other marginalised groups such as immigrant backgrounds.

“I wanted to thank you with all my heart for what I experienced in this wonderful project. I think every person who was there was special in creating the perfect package for a major change in my life.”

EmployABLE

EmployABLE aims to empower young disabled participants by giving them a stronger sense of identity, competences and strengths. Participants improve their knowledge of different tools, technology, communication skills and ultimately explore more aspirational career opportunities.

“At the start of EmployABLE, I was unemployed. Now I have a challenging job that I enjoy, and a bright future ahead of me”.

 

BEAT-IT!

​Bullying Education Awareness and Tactics for Inclusion and Tolerance gives priority to those with lived experience of bullying, intolerance and prejudice. BEAT IT addresses issues of e-safety, lack of digital literacy and critical thinking skills. The overarching goal of BEAT IT is to reduce hate speech, cyberbullying and combat the rise of populism and extremism.

 

A recurring theme was that bullying and intolerance had become rife on social media not just for young people, but for everyone in society and this seemed to be reflected powerfully in traditional communities, creating intolerance, hate speech and prejudice.

FINANCIAL LIT 4 WOMEN

Financial Lit 4 Women is an Erasmus project aiming to create an inclusive Training Toolkit of Financial Literacy through Game-Based Learning for women who are not in employment, education or training, including those with a disability.

"Support/fair opportunity/real help were the most common themes with over half of participants using one or more of those words. One participant detailed training and education opportunities. Someone else said that people who are NEET expect their mental health issues to be misunderstood and that women expect sexism/misogyny."
