ABOUT US

Lancashire Women is a leading charity for women and girls in Lancashire with over 8500 women accessing their services over the past year and 31 active volunteers supporting delivery of their services. Their vision is where all women and girls in Lancashire are valued and treated as equals. Lancashire Women empower women and girls to be able to transform their lives by bringing them together to: find their voice, share experiences and understanding, develop their knowledge and skills and challenge stereotypes and misconceptions about them… so that they can have choices in becoming the individuals they want to be.

Through their network of female only centres, located across the county, they can help Lancashire Women:

  • Improve mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • Get advice on managing money, benefits and debt
  • Improve skills, knowledge and gain employment
  • Meet others and build friendships
  • Life safer, happier and more positive lives

“My life has turned around because of the support I’ve received. I feel that a light bulb has been turned on.”
