National Lottery Community Fund – Women’s Lives Leeds project
The Women’s Lives Leeds (WLL) Project is a NLCF Women and Girls Initiative Funded 4-year Project that delivered a range of opportunities, including frontline services that enabled women and girls to lead safer and healthier lives.
The WLL Project focused on Women, Young Women and Girls and identified specific target groups: young women, women with complex needs and recently arrived new migrant communities and was based on initial research completed in December 2015 that identified current needs.
The Project aims to achieve the following 3 outcomes:
- Improved and extended access for vulnerable women and girls in Leeds to the services and support they want, when they choose
- A holistic response to ensure that the needs of women and girls with multiple and complex issues are better supported
- Women and Girls will be empowered to support their peers and influence service delivery, development and design across the city
As this project has now entered its fifth year a comprehensive Women’s Lives Leeds Project Evaluation completed in partnership with Leeds Becketts University is available to download.
