Work and children under one roof

This project was aimed at supporting women returning to the labour market after their maternity leave. We opened a co-working centre, which was the only one in our district. We provided a fully furnished shared space for work, professional care of children and their education, free-time activities, business counseling, or help while finding a job. Other workshops, a retraining course, and also motivational courses were held. We attempted to increase employers’ awareness of the forms and advantages of flexible forms of work via courses and informative brochures. Furthermore, we strove to implement a regional informational campaign focused on equal opportunities for men and women. Overall, we supported more than 53 women, and 7 of them started their own business. In the future, after the project’s completion, we will operate a co-working centre and provide babysitting and children’s education. The project had no involved partners.
