The CAIF project at commUnity+ will target women who are at risk and ensure they are supported to maximize participation in high quality education programs and address equity and access. 

The women at risk will work with service providers to co-design the pre-accredited programs, to ensure their barriers are addressed and support the learners to meet their needs and aspirations to pursue further education and employment. The course will be developed and delivered by a network of providers who work together in their local catchment to ensure women can access these programs easily. The program will take into consideration access to transport, innovation-engaging programs to maximise their participation and address some of their life skills issues (financial literacy and knowledge of community support groups) to ensure the women have wrap around services to support education pathways.

Your participation in this short survey will be help us in the process of identifying key areas of impact, as a part of phase I of this project.
