Women’s Community Matters is about you.  Yes, you!

You are wonderful.  All women are.

Women's Community Matters is run by women, for women.

We offer a wide range of courses, support groups, activities and appointments in a safe, women-only space.

We aim to support you with anything you may need, including benefits, housing, domestic or sexual abuse, the police, courts, prison, mental wellbeing, employment, education and social activities.

We want to know you - your hopes, dreams, passions and interests - and help you move forward with those in mind.

We are inclusive and provide services to all women, regardless of age, race, disability, religion and belief, lesbian, bisexual or transgender identity, or any other irrelevant factor. We welcome ALL women through our doors.

We are the only centre of its type in the Barrow-in-Furness district.  One of a kind.

Just like you.

We all need a place that we can call our own and if you are looking for somewhere where there are friendly faces, helpful guidance or advice and a hot cup of tea then you are looking at the right place. 

Sometimes it’s just nice to get out of the house or away from work!

It doesn’t matter about your age or background.  If you are a woman interested in meeting other people from the area, all with a story to tell then you should pop in and say hello.

We’d love to meet you!
