The season of giving is upon us, whether that’s spending time with friends, gifting presents under the tree or sharing you grandma’s secret mulled wine recipe. Christmas is also time to gift a wish to those who need it, whether it’s a little extra love, a boost of courage or good fortune.
To make this a possibility, we’ve partnered with The Young Women’s Trust, a charity dedicated to supporting young women, to create a beautiful collection of Christmas decorations, which have a wish for love, courage, fortune and more beautifully embroidered on them.
These creations not only lift the spirits of your loved ones (and look fabulous on the tree) but also donate to the Young Women’s Trust to support young women into work.
Research by the trust shows that almost half a million young women are unemployed and more are stuck in low paid, insecure work. This is why The Young Women’s Trust is working with women aged 18-30 to find work that is right for them.
“We’re the only charity that is set up expressly for young women, to shout about their brilliant promise and create a world free of discrimination for them…Our mission is to shine a light on that wonderful pool of talent and possibility, support those women to develop their skills and strong mental health, and raise their voices so that their contributions are valued.” – The Young Women’s Trust CEO, Sophie Walker.
Working closely with young women, the trust offers coaching workshops that build skills and encourage strong mental health as well as CV feedback and interview techniques.
The Young Women’s Trust also works to achieve economic justice for young women through activist training and campaigning. They cover everything from ending job segmentation, stereotyping and sexual harassment to flexible working and pay discrimination.
How you can help The Young Women’s Trust
