‘Women in the KNOW’ is coming to Knowsley.

by Emily Maguire

Kindred  – a community interest company that supports and harnesses local entrepreneurialism for social good –  is working in partnership with Shakespeare North Playhouse and other local partners on an new programme called Women in the KNOW. It’s all about celebrating women who are growing the social and creative economy of Knowsley.

Kindred are hosting a series of sessions across the borough in October, hosted by local women, to talk about the support they can give and hear the ideas you want to work on.

If you live in Knowsley and:

  • are at the very start of an idea for a social business
  • are already on your way with an idea for a social business
  • are a local group of women who’ve got an idea to make things better for your community
  • if you want to get into theatre, music, or the creative and digital arts
  • start a local catering company, a community garden or healthy living project
  • or any other idea that you think will have a positive impact in your local community…

… then these sessions are for you.

Chris Spriggs, Kindred’s Collaborating Communities lead, says: “Kindred is delighted to be working in Knowsley in partnership with Shakespeare North Playhouse, locally-based socially trading organisations (STOs) including Better Lives, Care4U, and Gateway Collective and many more!

“Women in the Know is going to be a fantastic celebration of those women growing the social and creative economy of Knowsley. And we can’t wait to hear even more new ideas that local women want to get off the ground or need support with. That’s what Women in the Know is all about’
