The Women Involved in Community Transformation Programme has been designed to increase the participation and influence of women in community development. It is being delivered by four organisations - Training for Women's Network, Co-operation Ireland, Intercomm and Foyle Women's Information Network.

They will also be given an opportunity to complete an ILM qualification in Leadership.


Women who have already completed Phase I of the Programme will be asked to choose one of three pathways:

The Programme is being funded by the Department for Communities and is free to participants.
