HWW exists to support homeworker organising. This means bringing homeworkers together, and providing the right kind of support, advice and training to enable women to form organisations to represent them and fight for their rights.
Homeworkers face many challenges to organising - and creative and flexible approaches are needed, which respond to the homeworkers’ situation and local context. Depending on their situation homeworkers might form self-help groups, associations, co-operatives, unions or informal groups. HWW helps these varied organisations build links with each other, so homeworkers can share experiences and learn from each others’ strategies.
By growing together and learning from each other, homeworkers can build strong and independent organisations of their own choosing. Here are just some of the ways homeworkers have overcome obstacles to organising, and built organisations to fight for their rights.
