Connect4Women is a collaborative project between WOMEN’STEC, Glow NI, and Shankill Women’s Centre. We take a holistic approach to helping unemployed women in North Belfast to learn new skills, access further education, and build their confidence and self-esteem. We work with the women to explore their needs and develop an individual pathway that will allow them to access a unique blend of personal development, education and training that will improve their life opportunities and overall wellbeing.
"I am now in part-time employment because I was able to sit my exams in the centre and my child attends the nursery all because Shankill Women's Centre made me believe I could do anything. I tell everyone to go even just to mingle with others. Shankill Women's Centre changed my life."

"Not only was it amazing increasing my self-esteem and learning new, relevant skills, but they looked after my little one too so I could focus on what I was doing. The team does a fantastic job and the service is invaluable to the women they help. Thank you so much!"
"Natasha & Chara were fantastic at leading the course and I was lucky to be part of a fantastic group of other ladies as well. I now feel more equipped to deal with whatever life throws at me and have the confidence to take more chances."
