We provide safe, trusted and supportive women-only spaces in both North and South Kirklees, for women experiencing difficulties with their mental health and wanting to maintain their wellbeing. All our activities are provided by women, for and with women.
At the core of all our services is the concept that each woman leads the way out of her presenting difficulties with resources, facilitation and support provided by WomenCentre.

We take a holistic approach to women’s lives and their mental health and emotional wellbeing.

Our groups and courses are co-facilitated by workers and volunteers and aim to increase confidence, self-esteem, reduce anxiety and isolation, support recovery from domestic abuse, after grief and loss and develop healthy relationships. We also have specialist support for mothers living apart from their children, refugees and migrants and LGBTQ+.

We also offer activity-based groups including singing, sewing and knitting, art and craft, book club and walking. Most of our groups are supported by volunteers or volunteer led.

We currently have 12 volunteers supporting WomenCentre projects across the week, and their dedication, contribution and hard work is invaluable to the service and the organisation as a whole.
Feedback from some of our volunteers;

“I get to teach new skills and see the end results.”

“I know that by volunteering, I am benefitting the ladies that attend, and that gives me a sense of satisfaction and achievement.”
