Local Women Local Enterprise engages women in community-based enterprise support to drive sustainable social change.
The Charity’s purpose is to remove the barriers to financial independence that are being experienced by many women in Newcastle, by providing a safe environment to build skills, gain experience and confidence.
Local Women Local Enterprise is a community of local women, all on their own journey.
We deliver individually tailored enterprise courses, experiences and support, working with women in the local community, and supporting them across all aspects of their lives.
Through our programme and the support of local partners, women can access the support they need to start their own journey with confidence; make choices about what to do next, and they can get the skills, advice and experience they need to reach their goals.
Some of the women we have met have agreed to tell their own stories.
