Smallwood Trust Sponsorship

With thanks to The Smallwood Trust we are able to support 75 disabled adult women living in poverty in the county of Dorset to start their own business.

Over 12-months, DAMSEL is working towards showcasing the skills and talents of disabled women in Dorset, and provides 1-1 individual support with female advisers to help explore self-employment goals as a flexible employment option that can fit around client’s health and other needs like parenting responsibilities for example.

The funding will help us offer 225 hours of tailored business start-up advice and guidance over three meetings of approximately one-hour duration plus on-going volunteer mentoring support.

The invaluable support from The Smallwood Trust has also provided superb personal development opportunities to 12 of our volunteer business mentors.
