North Wales Women’s Centre is a local, independent charity. We work closely with the public sector – including the probation service, the police and local authority – but we are funded entirely by grants, donations from the public, and contracts we win to deliver specific pieces of work.
Our funders and supporters
You can meet some of our funders & supporters here – without them, we wouldn’t have been able to support the 3,000+ women we’ve worked with since the charity started back in 2001.
We also work closely with partners in the voluntary sector. Our multi-agency approach allows us to provide a ‘one stop shop’ support service to women. Many agencies refer women to us, and we refer to them. Each year we deliver services to approximately 400 women, and 70 to 80 women attend the Centre daily. Of these 400 women, 200 access intensive one to one support.
Information and Support
This ‘Information & Support’ service is provided to those more vulnerable women with multiple and complex issues which are preventing them from progressing to happier more fulfilled lives. Typical issues dealt with are domestic violence, homelessness and poverty.
Our Charity is governed by a board of 6 trustees. These local volunteers bring skills and expertise in key areas, including housing, justice and finance. Our Trustees have overall control of our charity and are responsible for making sure we work towards our agreed aims and objectives. We are often looking to recruit new Trustees. If you are interested volunteering your time and skills please contact us.
Day to day management of the charity is delegated to our Managing Director, with the support of the Operational Management Team, leading a team of dedicated, skilled and experienced caseworkers and delivery staff.
The capacity of the organisation is further supported through our volunteers – currently numbering over 40 – who bring vital skills, community knowledge, and – above all else – passion for what they do.
Interested in volunteering? We’d love to hear from you.
