Public benefits

The public aim of Windsor Women’s Centre is to address the root causes of intergenerational poverty and disadvantage for women and children. We deliver a holistic range of services which are designed to address the barriers that contribute to women’s marginalisation and poor quality of life e.g. poverty, lack of childcare, lone parenting, social

isolation, poor health, and language and cultural barriers for ethnic minorities. We provide activities to build women’s skills and confidence, educational opportunities to gain skills and qualifications’, health and wellbeing programmes, family support, independent advice and community development and capacity building projects Through engagement in our services women will benefit by improving the quality of their lives, they will have accessed advice and sign-posting and early years support to benefit their families and have happier and healthier children. They will have enhanced their employment opportunities, they will be less socially isolated and feel better supported within our community and connected to society as a whole. These benefits are evidenced by the numbers of women participating in our programmes, community events, the numbers of qualifications gained, feedback from participants, focus groups and our external inspection and monitoring reports. No private gain is derived from our purpose and no harm arises as a result of our activity. There is no harm.
