The Own My Life course is an innovative, creative and educational 12-week course for women. It can be delivered online or in-person and supports women to regain ownership of their lives when they have subjected to abuse or violence. This is done through CPD accredited training so practitioners can run the course with women and using short videos, structured discussions, group and individual activities, and a comprehensive learning journal.
Own my life values
We seek to ensure that all women we reach experience equality of opportunity: we also aim to move beyond equality, and work towards a world where women are liberated from male violence and control.
Women and their needs are at the centre of everything we do. Our aim to prioritise women is in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 in which “sex” is a protected characteristic.
We hold ourselves to a high ethical standard, striving to act honestly, fairly and consistently and using power wisely and well.
This resistance is both collective and individual. As an organisation we will resist the oppression of women and the ways patriarchy harms us all. Alongside this, we recognise that all women find creative ways to resist abusers. Rather than this resistance being honoured, women are often met with scorn and blame. Our work seeks to honour and mobilise women’s resistance to abuse and patriarchy.
We foster collaborative spaces which build sisterhood and resist competitive attitudes. We will work together with charities and other partner organisations to achieve our goals.
