We are committed to ensuring that our board represents the diversity of the women that use our services and warmly welcome applications from all parts of our local community.  


We celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2019 and have grown over the years into an established charity serving Watford and the surrounding areas, providing education and training; employability advice; counselling; personal development; and support for women experiencing domestic abuse. The board is focusing on ensuring our financial sustainability and delivering high-quality services which meet the needs of our beneficiaries both now and for the future.
