Supporting And Linking Tradeswomen - Australia

Supporting And Linking Tradeswomen - (SALT) is a not for profit organisation which has worked extensively to increase diversity and acceptance in the trades and particularly support up-skilling women. 

SALT was founded in Wollongong, NSW in 2009 and in 2019 became a Registrable Australian Body to extend the support for tradeswomen in all trades in all states. SALT has always encouraged men to join as we believe the way forward is men and women working together. This year will mark 10 years of supporting and linking tradeswomen!

In 2012, SALT founded the world’s only mobile workshop, the SkillWomen Trailer, designed to teach women how to use tools. The workshops teach women of all ages tool skills, independence and self-esteem which broadens the scope of what women think they can do. We work to increase diversity and acceptance by telling people that jobs do not have a gender and helping women gain skills, which will enhance their financial stability and security.

 In 2017 SALT opened the SALT SkillWomen Shed with the support of Blacktown City Council. Women can recieve ongoing support with learning new tool skills, there are very few places that women can currently access this kind of support in a safe and friendly environment.

Providing diversity and acceptance for all people in trades.
