Over the last 32 years Watford Women’s Centre has developed into a community asset for our service users and our partners, networks and local agencies. We believe in working to co-ordinate work across different agencies for the benefit of vulnerable women across all communities in our local area.
We have a robust network of over 30 statutory and non-statutory community partners across domestic abuse, adult education and training, the criminal justice service, healthcare, schools, community and faith groups. We also work closely with local employers campaigning across Hertfordshire for the benefit of vulnerable women.
As a charity, Watford Women’s Centre depends almost entirely on funding received from local statutory orgnaisations, grant-making bodies, community organisations, local businesses and voluntary donations. We are enormously grateful to all our recent funders and donors for their crucial support to our ongoing work.
The principal funding sources for the charity in 2020/21 were from the following:
- Futures Group
- Hertfordshire County Council
- John Lewis Foundation
- Lifelines Trust
- National Careers Service
- National Lottery Community Fund
- Police & Crime Commissioner (Hertfordshire)
