Futures for Women is the new name for the Society for Promoting the Training of Women (Registered Charity No: 313700).  Please note that we no longer award interest-free loans for further education and training. 

News Update

Futures for Women’s Chair Rosie Parr and Secretary Jane Hampson visited Birmingham  on 10 May for an inspiring introduction to the Sharan Project’s employability programme, which Futures for Women are part-funding over the next two years.

The Sharan Project provides a two-week course in conjunction with the training provider ‘Go Train’, designed to help the women participants find employment. These women, from South Asian communities in the city, have experienced domestic violence, forced marriages or other abuse. Employment will help to reduce the risk of harm to them, and the programme is also supported by the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner.

For further information on the programme please visit this page.
