£6,300 to expand life skills courses for vulnerable women.
Venus is a charity that offers support to vulnerable women and families who are facing difficulties in their lives. Through outreach programmes they help women overcome problems such as poor housing, debt, drug and alcohol misuse, mental ill-health, isolation, relationship difficulties and parenting concerns. Support is provided to women in their homes and at the Bootle centre through a team of specialist workers. In addition to the one to one support, Venus provides family activities such as day trips, an annual residential, weekly drop-ins, advice and information and accredited parenting courses.
PH Holt is funding £6,000 towards the expansion of the successful SHE life-skills course which is tailored to meet the needs of vulnerable women by building skills and confidence so they can take control over their lives. The course covers budgeting & money management, routines within the home, basic cooking skills, personal hygiene and health & safety.
