Women for a Change


The first stage in our Women Making a Difference programme of training is our accredited community development course entitled Women for a Change.

The course is free and open to all women and successful participants will gain an Agored Cymru qualification in Community Development.

The course covers topics such as:

  • Benefits of getting involved in community activity
  • Sustainable community development
  • Communication and confidence skills
  • Strategic thinking and project planning tools 
  • Understanding the decision-making processes in local, national and central Government

It usually runs one day a week, for six weeks and during term times and school hours.

Wherever possible, we offer support with childcare and access costs or will even provide a free crèche depending on location and facilities available.

Our most recent courses in 2015 have been run in Swansea, Cardiff, and Glnneath and have proved to be a great success. Here are what some of our participants think about the course:

Happiness - participant in Swansea

Gwen - participant in Swansea

Monika - participant in Bridgend
