New programme for women funded by the Department of Justice & Equality announced

In 2014 the Women's Centre along with the other 16 NCCWN women's community development projects throughout the country began a yearlong campaign to have the funding for women's projects ring fenced. We are delighted that this campaign was successful and a new women's programme under the Department of Justice & Equality was announced last week by Minister Kelly and Minister Fitzgerald.  This will give the NCCWN long term core funding thus offering some continuity to the 17 NCCWN women's projects across Ireland including the Women's Centre.  Thanks to everyone who supported our campaign locally, who wrote letters, signed petitions and who lobbied our local political representatives. Thanks also to local & national representatives who supported us.  It is very heartening and affirming to have the work of the NCCWN acknowledged and valued.
