As individuals, we all have our own journey, JOY is here to help you with this, through structured support, meetings, drop-ins, training, mentoring & courses.

We can help you to achieve goals, make friendships & gain new skills & confidence along the way.

JOY is a women & female identifying-only community project which provides support to enable women to access new skills, enhance confidence & empower them to make their own informed choices & decisions. We are currently facilitating JOY Sessions in Malvern, Evesham, Worcester  & not too far away from launching (as of August 2023) Bromsgrove, Redditch & Kidderminster, which is a really exciting opportunity to spread JOY across the county!

Each woman’s journey will be unique & specifically tailored to their own abilities & needs, supporting them to gain access in volunteering, mentoring & acquiring a variety of skills.
