Empowered Women Empower Women
Trying to find your feet in an unequal world can be exhausting - but the Women’s Centre is here for you to share your struggles and achievements with like-minded women, dig deep into therapeutic or creative activities, or just blow off some steam with some physical activity.
Cardiff Women’s Centre exists to support women from all walks of life to explore, heal and find their power. We focus on providing support and advice, helping women to connect and discover new opportunities, and creating a sustainable circle of women supporting women.
Our end goal is the full and meaningful participation of women in all aspects of life, having the power to choose their own destiny and full control over the journey they take.
Your journey starts here
access help and advice
Our Women's Centre on Moira Terrace is open, when we are not affected by Covid, most days of the week.

The Women's Centre also a partner to the RISE Cardiff service which provides crisis support, accommodation and advocacy for women (and their children) who are experiencing or been affected by any form of violence against women and particularly domestic violence/abuse and sexual violence/abuse. Go to the RISE website to find out more about their services.

Connect with others
We have an ever growing range of free workshops and groups on a wide range of topics.
There are also recovery and therapeutic programs and groups to support women rebuild after trauma. These include specific work with survivors of domestic violence/abuse.
One of our key aims is to enable women to fully participate in society which is often an indicator of healthy families and communities. However, an increasing number of women are at risk of being socially isolated particularly if they are rebuilding their lives after abuse, or if they are older or with health issues. Isolation affects coping skills and makes other problems harder to deal with.
We believe women need strong social and community connections to thrive.
Work for change
In addition to helping women meet their basic needs, create community and support individual personal development and empowerment we are working to ensure women's voices are present in dialogues around various social, political and economic issues.
We want to make sure policy proposals are considered through a gender-plus lens.
The Women's Centre is a lively space dedicated to learning about social issues and creating social change. Women still face barriers to equality and participation in society. We believe it's important to address those barriers.
Volunteers are involved in developing and delivering all our activities including our workshops and survivor network.
We are developing a peer model which welcomes and encourages diversity in culture, experience and skills, and we work to build a reciprocal process.
All women can contribute differently and equitably to the Women's Centre based on their skills, capacity and experience.
