In Her Hands - empowering women through building

Near Steyning, West Sussex

In Her Hands is a non-profit project that aims to create an empowering space for women to learn and explore the fundamentals of building and construction. We're working with women and girls from across Sussex (and beyond) to build confidence and independence working with tools and completing their own builds. For more information see We're currently in the final stages of renovating an old stable building into a workshop and are in desperate need of materials to help us finish the renovation and continue to run workshop days. All the timber we use is reclaimed and our funds are limited so we're always on the hunt for wood and other bits that will help us run workshops.

Materials required

- Boards/planks e.g. scaffold boards, floorboards etc. - Pallets in re-usable condition - Structural timer e.g. 2x2, 2x4 or bigger - Sheet materials e.g. ply, OSB - Screws, nails, tools - Cement, shingle, sand, slabs
