The Women’s Centre tailors specific services around the needs of the women of Allerdale and Copeland and its vision is to give every West Cumbrian woman the support, tools and opportunities they need to thrive and achieve their dreams.
The centre’s facilities include amenities such as interview rooms, a laundry provision, a Hub where social activities take place, and private 1-on-1 spaces. The WOW centre also organises peer-to-peer support groups taking part in activities ranging from craft sessions, wellbeing workshops, recovery discussions and creative fundraising activities. The core programme is based on west Cumbrian women supporting each other to reach their full potential, with an emphasis on caring for and connecting with each other.
Staff, external agencies, support services and clients all work together towards a shared goal of women-centred support, providing the tools and opportunities that empower each woman to find the freedom, strength and power to change her life.
