History & Achievements

History & Achievements

Summary of the history and outcomes of the work in the Women’s Centre from 1995 to the present day:




The Childcare Centre


Our Childcare Centre

The Women’s Centre Childcare Service cares for up to 50 children from 15 months to 8 years weekly. We are open from 8.45am – 5.15 pm Monday to Friday. Our small numbers support children, parents and staff to get to know each other, thus building strong relationships.  

Facilitators Panel

The Women’s Centre has a panel of facilitators who receive training in process oriented participatory group work. Each year participants of the Higher Certificate in Community Education and Development which is facilitated in the Women’s Centre and accredited by W.I.T are invited to interview as trainee facilitators. This training involves shadowing our facilitators and attending weekly training and support sessions. The trainee progresses to planning, facilitating and reporting on group sessions, and at the end of their training presenting for assessment.
