This project was an innovative project developed by CLS in liaison with staff of West Dunbartonshire Women’s Aid. Supported by Dunbritton Housing Association and with funding from sources including People and Communities Fund and Big Lottery, the project provides training options for women who have suffered domestic abuse and who are in refuge or who are supported by WDWA. The aim is to build the skills and confidence of the women towards an independent life beyond refuge. Training includes IT skills, budgeting skills, basic cookery, lifestyle choices, goal setting and confidence building.
