Saje Scotland -

Janet Henderson has been working in the field of reducing violence against women for 20

years. She worked with Fife Women’s Aid as a children’s worker for 9 years. She then worked for Fife Violence Against Women Partnership as the training and development co-ordinator rolling out the Scottish Executive National Training Strategy to reduce violence against women and girls.

After discovering the incredible Freedom Programme and attending Pat Craven’s training,

Janet and a colleague set up Saje Scotland.

Armed with the deep belief that the unique Freedom Programme was a new way to

complement existing work already happening in Fife, slowly but surely services began to see the remarkable outcomes for the women who completed Freedom. Big Lottery funding enabled Saje Scotland to expand and we’re now a well-respected, established charity in Fife.

The Freedom Programme will always be the foundation of the organisation. However, over the last several years, Saje has evolved into a more holistic organisation by providing follow on courses such as, our Freedom Hub Drop-in Café for women to keep connected and have access to further education and employment services. Saje has also developed bespoke programmes for gay and bisexual women, and women with learning difficulties or disabilities. Additionally, we offer mini groups to encourage women with substance issues or those in the criminal justice system to attend a full Freedom Programme. Saje is also currently working with young people in schools delivering to girls and PSE classes.
