Our Vision:

Our vision is to ensure all women in the community to have a visible voice. By providing women with learning opportunities by accessing a wide range of diverse activities.

Also by attending various leadership programmes and training we hope to improve their confidence and encourage personal, social and emotional growth. The Group provides an opportunity for diverse groups of women to express their needs, their views on services received whilst looking at reducing barriers which will enable them to contribute equally to the big society.
