Moving On To Success

Through a range of appropriately designed services and supports, Springtide Resources worked in partnership with the YWCA LinksToJobs Employers’ Network, two lead employers PPG Canada and D. Gary Gibson and Associates, and A Commitment to Training and Employment for Women (ACTEW). This innovative partnership assisted women in making the transition to sustained and satisfying employment.

The project had two objectives:

  1. To offer women who are survivors of abuse, in abusive situations or are at risk of abuse a holistic range of employment training supports, to enable them to build their assets and move on to economic independence. To support the women and employers so the outcome would be a good work experience and therefore help to facilitate job retention.
  2. Identify and document recommended best practices for a resource package for employers, VAW and community-based training practitioners.
