This women’s centre is in Southbank, on the outskirts of Middlesbrough. It is a pioneering grass roots venture providing a one-stop-shop for women in a non threatening safe environment which helps to support the well being of local women and improve their quality of life. To do this it offers one to one support, advice & guidance, training and education, employment opportunities, a drop in facility to help tackle social exclusion, and referral to outside agencies when necessary.
The Foundation has made a £5,000 grant towards the general running costs of the Centre in February 2016. It will contribute towards providing assistance to more than 200 women.
