Through research I spotted a gap in communities for workshops which are self paced for women who have been out of work for a while.

Through talking to people and monitoring the employment market I've realised that there is a gap for short courses or workshops online and off line to assist women who have taken a gap in their employment.

Jottys workshop invites professional business mentors/professional tutors to give women tools to become independent and have confidence to move forward and I have written testimonials to support my project.I raised money through Crowd funding page and my 50th birthday. Age is no barrier! However, I do need to cover professional fees,room hire, website, and other expenses.

Everything I offer is tailored to the individual and there is no pressure for them. Helping them find out what they really want to achieve and then guiding them through mentoring and workshops to realise their goals.

I initially supported this project as an individual and now have a group of volunteers who want to help with the workshops. They will be trained fully and supported as part of our team. Some are helping me with fundraising by selling handmade cards. A local artist has created post card size artwork to support my rewards on Voom.

The money raised helps to pay for professional tutors and other expenses. All the other courses I teach are free from Customer Service skills, interview skills and CV skills and help them find jobs through my local network on Linked In. Online mentoring is also self paced.

I have  encouraged some women to work from home as freelance workers so that they too can contribute to their families and communities.

Some  women were supported to do voluntary work at their local schools,charities  and have now become Administrators and Teacher's Assistants.  Some have progressed from cleaners to pharmacy dispensers. Some have progressed from delivering medicines to medicine counter assistant in a pharmacy.

Voom is a great platform and I know with the right support I can make a serious impact as a social enterprise because the women who have found employment are much happier! Some no longer use food banks and can afford to travel by bus. I am hoping that hours of hard work to get to this point will help me progress further. I am confident because I have evidence to prove that it is solving a social problem and making a positive difference in our local communities.

Please vote and pledge to impact lives! It will help many families who are going through that dark tunnel and need light!
