WEST END WOMEN AND GIRLS CENTRE 

We aim to empower women and girls who have been traditionally disenfranchised from access to existing services, to effect positive change in their leisure, work and social environments. We do this by providing group work where women and girls can meet, have fun, learn new skills and look at issues relevant to their lives, building confidence in a safe and supportive environment.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including a Community Foundation

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • The Board is completely female
  • The Board composition appears to be rather static

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • This charity appears to be dormant
Established: 35 years
