About Us

Women’s Community Matters philosophy is simple.

“Every Woman Matters”.

We believe…

“with love, care, compassion and kindness we will change the world.”

We want to make a positive difference to the lives of women aged 14 and above in the Barrow area.  We want to help in all ways we can, creating a strong resource to women in crisis and those who are vulnerable and at risk.

We strive to create an atmosphere of empowerment and self-development, removing obstacles and dealing with issues together.  The women who benefit from the centre can then play a key role in shaping Women’s Community Matters future and participating in its operation as volunteers, trustees and members.

The Team

The core team of Women’s Community Matters are central to its funding, operation and development. We live and breathe the philosophy that Every Woman Matters and this is our vocation. We are real women, who understand the pressures, the challenges and the successes that women face on a daily basis.

Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of the centre, giving it a warm and friendly face. Every single one has something valuable to offer the women of the centre and without them Women’s Community Matters wouldn’t be able to operate.
