A pilot program is to commence enabling mothers, displaced through domestic violence, to obtain a qualification and a helping hand into employment.
Often women with children, single and destitute through domestic violence issues, find it near impossible to get back on their feet financially and support their family.
Franklyn Scholar one of Australia’s largest private education providers in conjunction with WIRE - Women’ s Information, have joined forces to enable these women to receive training for a qualification at no cost.
These mothers are some of the most vulnerable people in our society and all have the heavy burden of needing to provide for their families, many without any family support and all as a result of domestic violence and separation issues.
The pilot program is looking for eligible mothers to participate in the program, held over 12 weeks commencing in October and will be fully funded by Franklyn Scholar and WIRE.
If the pilot is successful, Franklyn Scholar and WIRE intend to roll out an extension of this program nationally in 2011.
Help profile this worthwhile program and raise awareness to the plight of the displaced family.
If we can help a mum get back on her feet, we help the entire family and community.
Franklyn Scholar is Australia's largest private workplace education provider.
This year we will train over 17,000 people and currently service over 900 employers / clients. The Franklyn Footprint is a foundation set up to offer training and employment opportunities to those most disadvantaged in our communities.
