ReMade Wigan

Description

ReMade is a recently incorporated CIC established to redress the absence of women-only support services across Wigan. Exceptionally well researched, networked and partnered, ReMade will provide upcycling workshops as a vehicle to create a support community for local women who are vulnerable to abuse as a result of mental health issues, domestic violence, homelessness or substance misuse. ReMade’s 10-year ambition is to establish the borough’s first women’s resource hub, expanding to lease space to other women’s projects, providing a paid team of women peer mentors, offering accredited training programmes in women’s equality and domestic abuse and supporting women out of crisis by offering micro-grants for them to develop their own enterprises. Fore funding is allocated towards start-up costs, providing sufficient evaluation and proof of concept to secure larger commissioning funds.
