About Our Project
The WLL Alliance centres strong partnership work as key to supporting the needs of women and girls in our city and beyond. WLL Alliance members work together to empower women and girls through delivering a range of projects and have been successful in being awarded funding to deliver these, both as a twelve strong Alliance and as smaller partnerships within the Alliance.
The WLL Alliance continues to work together to help shape strategic conversations and thinking and is continuously working in partnership to secure much needed funds, to support the most vulnerable women, young women and girls across the city.
The Projects listed down the side of this page can access on this page are the more strategic and have secured a high profile across the city, but there are many more smaller projects of equal merit, value and need which are not detailed on this page.
Our Projects listed in more detail on our website are the:
- National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) – Women’s Lives Leeds Project
- WLL Covid Recovery – Digital Inclusion Project
- WLL Voices Project
Our Project Has Been Re-Funded for the Next Three Years
Now into a fifth year of Empowering and Supporting Women to lead healthier and safer lives and providing opportunities for women to have a voice and influence in local and strategic decision making, the National Lottery Community Fund have demonstrated their commitment to Women’s Lives Leeds by refunding them and the Complex Needs Service for another three years.
Starting in the New Year, over the next three years, the WLL Alliance intends to take Service, Partnership, Strategic and Project Learning forward to drive local systems change; develop partnership and leadership opportunities for women; and to empower and enable them to both lead and develop better services for women, young women and girls.
The Project aims to share its existing service delivery learning to influence local systems change and its strategic learning to influence change beyond Leeds with the aim that other regional colleagues will take this learning and develop similar mechanisms, initiatives and activities.
In addition to making the WLL Alliance more robust and stronger by inviting more women’s centred organisations to join them, it will specifically focus on learning from the Complex Needs Service and testing and piloting initiatives through partnership working to inform more gendered-focussed service development and provision across Leeds. These outcomes will then be shared regionally.
Other Successful Projects the WLL Alliance has delivered include:
The year long city-wide Community Outreach programme – Centenary Celebrations of the Suffrage Movement, celebrating some Women having the right to Vote for the first time. The Project Report is available here.
