Supporting Entrepreneurship and Wellbeing Through Art

Art and Crafts with the Community Restorative Centre

Arts and Crafts

In January, Women’s Business 2nd Chance welcomed the Community Restorative Centre (CRC) to their Rooty Hill Hub to host the very first Art and Crafts Session.  

The ladies got creative and made their own beautiful beaded jewellery. 

The Community Restorative Centre primarily provides a range of services to people involved in the criminal justice system. Women’s Business is helping connect them to local women who have experienced the justice system and would like support to build a better life for themselves and their families. 

Centerlink also attended the workshop to have a check-in session with the participants. 

Our very own Aspirant, Zoey Hookey joined to present on the Centrelink Traineeship Program which she is currently employed through. Zoey has been a deadly success in our Return to Work Pathways Program and we’re so proud of how far she’s come! 

It was such an awesome time and all the ladies are looking forward to doing more at the Hub this year.
