The HFS Workshop On Wheels is a van-based workshop that enables us to provide practical pop-up training opportunities in the community. Our sessions cover DIY skills, repairs, crafts and woodwork.
WOW has visited:
- Women recovering from domestic violence at Refuges
- Older people’s groups
- Learning disability groups
- Refugee groups
- Community groups including women’s groups in Ore and Sidley
This year, funding from the Chalk Cliffs Trust and Hastings Burlesque is helping us provide sessions at women’s refuges. The women tell us that the sessions don’t just help them learn practical skills that make them feel more confident in their ability to maintain their own home when they move on, they also learn how to make items and decorate their new home to make it feel safe and comfortable for themselves and their children.
If you would like WOW to visit your community group, contact us and we’ll see if we can help.
