    Abstract

    This is the fourth in a series of short thematic summaries in which we share what we have heard and learnt from the people that have taken part in our research into The Robertson Trust's Women's Centre Programme. This thematic summary reports on the development of the women's space within the pre-existing community-led organisation, 'Lochaber Hope', in Fort William. It provides an overview of the context to and operation of Lochaber Hope, and elaborates their ethos, vision and approach to delivery. Thereafter it explores the dynamics and effects of participation in Lochaber Hope, before outlining the origins, development and evolution of the women's space therein.
