Framar Sewing Community Group
Framar Sewing Community Group joined Crowdfund Wolves1 month ago

This project aims to bring together people from different ethnic backgrounds. The project's idea is to meet and learn together, and to also remove the stigma of being an immigrant (which often carries a fear of refugees). Immigrants and refugees often fear being stereo typed and labelled which leads to their isolation. This project can help fix this issue as we bring people out of the house, to meet new friends have discussions, share a cup of tea and biscuits or just a laugh.

Help Lotus Sanctuary Empower Women
Help Lotus Sanctuary Empower Women joined Crowdfund Wolves1 month ago

Lotus Sanctuary is a community interest company with the pure and simple intention of housing and empowering vulnerable women suffering a range of complex issues; from rough sleepers to domestic violence victims, sexually exploited women and those seeking to get free from drug and alcohol addictions. We equip our residents with the skills that are vital to leading successful, independent lives. Our houses are small with no more than four residents per property in order to avoid a “hostel” like environment, to ensure individualised support and to aid in the resident’s path to independent living. We currently have three houses in Wolverhampton, giving us the capacity to house eight women. We are raising funds to develop and expand our on going support for our residents. We need the money to continue running our weekly yoga classes, start an art class and support group. We are looking to expand our services to give our resident the best chance at recovery and success. Much Love.

Less waste, less cost, less effect on the earth... what is there not to love? We plan to tackle the effect of period poverty by educating and supporting those on lowest incomes to make the change to reusable sanitary products, with an aim to increase attendance in schools and encourage more people through the doors of community buildings to take part in our education sessions. Our pilot session is due to be in a launched in a community centre in the WV10 postcode and aims to encourage 25 local people through the doors. Why? The cost of single use pads over 10 years could be as much as £600 or alternatively £10 for 1 menstrual cup... NO BRAINER! Imagine if we can help those on lower incomes to save money each month just by swapping a sanitary item! We plan to work in and advertise free products in community buildings in: The Scotlands and Bushbury, Low HIll, Fallings Park, Heath Town, Blakenhall, Bilston, St Peters, Ettingshall and schools which fall under these catchment areas.

Women’s Voice Institute
Women’s Voice Institute joined Crowdfund Wolves1 month ago

This project entitled “WOMENS VOICE INSTITUTE” is a socially engaged and a site specific project launching initially in Wolverhampton. The project has kick started by speaking to local women from Wolverhampton ranging from all different ages and ethnicities and conducting interviews with them to document their real experiences of sexual harassment, verbal harassment/abuse, physical assault and sexual assault that have happened in or around the city that haven’t been officially reported. The interviews and documentation of these women’s first hand experiences play a huge part in overall development of the project. The women were asked to share the locations/street names and the year they experienced these types of behaviour. The idea was to condense there stories into a short anonymous statements along with the year onto small purple plaques. (The colour purple signifying justice, dignity and also references the suffragettes movement.)
