FWH Creations places the highest value in developing and maintaining strong relationships within the local community, both with individuals and organisations. Our heart is to respond to a community’s real needs and we believe education and training are invaluable tools for empowering those who would otherwise struggle to become self-sufficient.
Local NGOs & community groups
At the core of FWH Creations is the desire to support women from disadvantaged backgrounds and we work with local partner organisations including Rahabs Rope to offer opportunities to women rescued and rehabilitated from lives of bonded labour and prostitution. We have a long-lasting relationship with Oasis India with whom the Jacobs Well tailoring programme was developed. We also work alongside several local churches through whom more women are referred to us for training and employment.
Universities in the UK
Within the UK, FWH Creations enjoys strong partnerships both within the charity and design sector, a highlight being our current involvement with students on BA Fashion Marketing & Fashion Communication courses at Heriot Watt University, who are taking part in a live marketing project for Jacobs Well. We also have a longstanding relationship with Manchester University, where students in their final year of Fashion and Design studies have worked on live briefs that the Jacobs Well team were then able to develop and incorporate into their product lines
We’re keen to build on these relationships especially as awareness of the ethical fashion movement grows. Want to get involved? Contact us today!
