We work with over 8500 women a year, supporting them to recognise their assets and achieve their potential. We are committed to ensuring that our work is effective and achieves meaningful and sustainable outcomes for the women we support. We use a range of tools to assess our impact, including the use of robust outcome measures and by undertaking internal and external evaluations of our work. We are also committed to sharing our best practice, both locally and nationally, in order to reach more women than we could ever do through direct delivery alone.
