    What success will look like

    We will observe the enjoyment of the women, as well as ask for feedback both verbal and written.

  • Impact


    The project will bring people together to celebrate which will have long term implications for the future. We will demonstrate this with a project plan for 2018, where everyone involved can make suggestions of activities for the year ahead.


    Powerhouse for women has a general risk assessment for the risks involved with working with people with learning disabilities, especially when dancing, a physical activity. The risk assessment will be shown to all staff and volunteers.
