WREN - COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS
Gather is working with St Giles to offer the WREN program, training for Community Champions - women with lived experience, who will use their experiences to create a positive change for themselves and other women in their communities.
Gather believes that this partnership & project will further enable supporting women seeking a safe place to find hope & community.
The Gather WREN program is funded by St Giles Trust.
The Learn to Advise training takes a total of 28 hours, across several weeks (excluding school holidays) - aiming to finish in early 2023.
