Women at the Centre helps us to understand the tremendous difficulties facing the lives of many women and children in modern Britain:

  • Poverty and the many traps built into the welfare system
  • The complacency and limited focus of many public services
  • The failure to address on-going issues of equality and power

WomenCentre helps women tackle these problems. It combines personalisation and collective community action to deliver some of the most powerful outcomes for women, families and the whole community:

  • Slashes reoffending rates to less than 5%
  • Helps women escape dependency on drugs and alcohol
  • Ensures the safety of women and children from violence and abuse
  • Supports women to transforms their own mental and physical health
  • Gets women learning, volunteering and moving out of poverty
