Women’s Peacemaker project reaching new communities

peacemakers logo

All the Small Things CiC have got funding from Stoke on Trent City Council to support women in the city to reach into new communities with the Women’ s Peacemaker Project.

We will be working in Normacot from September 2019 and Tunstall from January 2020.

peacemakers galleryThe Women’s Peacemaker Project started in Shelton and Cobridge in 2017. We brought a group of women together to meet regularly and listen to each other. We shared what makes us feel safe and things that caused us concern and make us feel unsafe.

Together we decided things we would like to focus on, invited experts to train us and did our own research to find out more. We made a plan for action.

With our new funding the group will have training and mentoring to reach out and involve other women, to listen to them and help them identify their priorities. We will develop a strong collective voice, plan and take action to make our communities safer for everyone.
