Welcome to our new website - it is a work in progress
women empowering women
The Women's Centre isn't just a place its a state of mind.
Cardiff Women's Centre is delivered by women for women and our aim is to empower women to reach their full potential. We also offer women the opportunity to both receive and provide support.
We provide a safe and supportive space, both in our building and our online services, where women can access information, support, advice, education, connect with others and build community.
Our wide range of activities are designed to support women overcome many of the specific challenges we face as women, including domestic violence, sexual assault, poverty of opportunity, and help heal the trauma.
Violence against women and girls is not inevitable but it continues to be prolific and we are dedicated to supporting women and their families to regain control over their lives and begin healing.
The impact of poverty on women are significant and we experience poverty at a much greater rate than men. The Women's Centre assists women to meet their own and their families basic needs.

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.
