On Monday 17th June Karen hosted an event in parliament for local Headteachers and Chairs of Governors to introduce them to the award winning social enterprise 'Women Like Us' which Karen has long supported.
The organisation was recently commissioned by Westminster City Council to offer employment services to mum's in local schools.
'Women Like Us' is an organisation which specialises in helping women with children to find part-time work and giving them practical support to make work and familiy fit together.
The organisation offers practical support and advice to women who want to get a job but don’t know where to start, through outreach in primary schools, information and guidance, coaching programmes and a recruitment service, which specialises in part time work.
Women Like Us partners with over 160 schools in London across 24 boroughs and they have over 10,000 women registered to use their service to date. They are dedicated to supporting women regain their confidence, enabling them to achieve their goal of finding flexible work they can fit around their caring responsibilities.
