International Women’s Day 2019

We believe International Women’s Day is a positive celebration that brings women together to promote solidarity and the building of women’s networks, to highlight women’s achievements and what still needs to be done to secure equality and equity for women in Calderdale, nationally and globally. That is why every year All 1 Collective commits to being part of the International Women’s Day celebrations around Calderdale.

Getting Connected: Feel Good Club

Delivered throughout summer 2018, at Todmorden Learning Centre, the Feel Good Club aimed to improve well-being, reduce isolation and improve emotional resilience for participants

Six workshop sessions were delivered giving participants the opportunity to meet others from the area, explore techniques to develop confidence and self-belief, develop practical skills around public speaking and conflict resolution and to understand and develop active listening skills. Each session ended in a dialogue session using a ‘conversation café’ style methodology.

Following on from the project an informal peer support and meet-up group was established by the participants.
