We help people to get further by working together
The Millin Charity has helped thousands of local people facing significant challenges, experiencing isolation or simply running out of options and not sure where to go next. By providing access to a support network of peers and services in the local community each person is able to find the help that best suits their own needs; through working together they have become socially and economically empowered, and able to make a much more active contribution to the local community.
Community-based support that makes a difference

An innovative project led by local women who volunteer their time in return for training, qualifications and real enterprise experience.
Fundraising and distribution of small enterprise grants to reduce the financial risk that can get in the way of women starting to trade.
