The "Well Girl" Walk
Founded in 1995, the Waterford Women’s Centre is now in its 25th year! This year will be one of huge celebration and we are planning a fantastic International Women’s Day series of event. In fact our celebrations will take up a full week!
As one of the 17 NCCWN (National Collective of Community Based Women's Networks) the Women's Centre works with women to enable participation through removing barriers and building confidence.
Recognising class/gender conditioning and how cultural, political and economic structures impact, the women’s centre aims to provide a space where:
1. Women can challenge barriers
2. Structures that impact negatively on women can be collectively challenged
By providing a space for women who are normally excluded from many areas, in particular from decision making, the Women's Centre builds capacity so that voices not usually heard can be.
The Women's Centre creche provides care for up to 35 children.
