Young Women's Decades Project

Investing in Children are supporting a  group of young women as young researchers funded by Young Roots Heritage Lottery Program.

The group is made up of 12 young women from distinctive backgrounds from across County Durham who have begun their research and want to take a North East perspective. The overall aim of their project is to promote what women bring to North East communities. Ideas are emerging to develop a resource pack to empower young women (a book or an app possibly) based on the contributions women bring to the North East through Heritage and their stories.
