Inspire Women: making positive change and having fun

Inspire women on International Women's Day
Inspire Women came about to bring women in Oldham who had experienced difficulties and struggles together, turning ‘vulnerability’ into confidence and making a positive change to their communities.

Working on a major project to refurbish and make better use of Newcombe Park Oldham women’s refuge, the group have transformed several spaces such as the Learning and Kidz Zones, Wellbeing Space and Go Grow / Grow Create projects which will all provide amazing spaces for women and children to learn, come together, and have fun!  Inspire have donated over 1000 hours of volunteering to Newcombe Park in the past 3 months.

The group organised a number of events during International Women’s Week under the theme of ‘Girls just wanna have fun’ which included  Zumba dancing, cake decorating, card making, nail painting, a teddy raffle and much more. They raised over £300 at the International Women’s Day events which brings their fundraising efforts total to almost £2,000.

Becoming a community interest company in August last year, Inspire has other long term plans too - including campaigning locally to support vulnerable women who are affected by welfare reforms along with securing a sustainable future for their social action and empowerment programmes.

By doing this it’s hoped the mutual support that Inspire offers can help turn even more lives around.
