ABOUT US

WEA Women in the Highlands

The WEA Women in the Highlands project works with women in the Highlands, supporting them by providing safe, non-judgemental environments where they can come together to learn, to give and receive support, and to discuss the issues important to them without fear of having their conversation shut down.

The WITH project is working towards three outcomes:

Project Outcome 1

Women in the Highlands will be encouraged and empowered to participate in and engage with services and civic society.

Project Outcome 2

Women expressing an interest in becoming leaders will be supported and have increased access to development opportunities.

Project Outcome 3

Four self-governing and sustainable women’s groups will be established in the Highlands.

WEA WITH will contribute to the following Scottish Government National Equality Outcome: Women’s position in the economy and in employment is improved in the long term, and to Outcome 2 of the Women's Equality Steering Group framework:

Greater understanding within the group and other stakeholders of the challenges faced by women and women’s organisations, and of the diverse nature of women’s lived experiences in Scotland.

Our workshops and events are free to attend.

The Women in the Highlands project is funded by the Scottish Government Promoting Equality and Cohesion Fund.
