The women learned to become more confident in dealing with difficult situations and in everyday living and to have more motivation to cope and succeed. Their children took part in Health and Well-being activities at the Northern college children’s centre.
The group members learned to speak up confidently and to be more assertive. They learned about listening, communication, team work, group discussion, stress and stress management skills.
In the evenings with their children they took part in Jewellery making, designing tee-shirts and explored the history of the Wentworth Castle, where the college is based.
