EMPOWERMENT

(including Female Empowerment)

One Voice Blackburn seeks to give a voice to those who are often overlooked in society, particularly young people and women. Our member groups (Mini WEGS, WEGS, EEBs and the two women’s groups) participate in a wide range of activities, including public speaking opportunities, which empower our members to speak out on issues that affect them and co-produce campaigns and engagement events to address these issues. One Voice Blackburn also provides opportunities for women to gain employability skills, gain accreditations and move into volunteering and work opportunities both through our organisation and partner organisations across the borough. Our digital skills programmes are well recognised in the borough and are supported by leading national digital agencies.
