Winner of the National Diversity Awards 2013
Community Organisation Award for Gender
West End Women and Girls Centre has existed for 32 years with the continual aim to empower women and girls in Newcastle, who have been traditionally disenfranchised from access to existing services, to effect positive changes in their leisure, work and social environments.
The organisation’s statistics provide evidence of the level of community engagement the centre achieves. 9242 women and girls accessed the centre in 2012, working with 4053 individuals and welcoming 1878 new members, demonstrating the accessibility of the centre. The organisation is the only open access women and girls centre in Newcastle, supporting 66 local volunteers and managing various initiatives, which provide effective and efficient services for the whole community. The sheer quality of nominations showcases the level of trust and respect the community has for the organisation, staff and services.
