WomenCentre have worked with West Yorkshire Liaison and Diversion since 2019, employing 2 members of staff in our service, one in Kirklees and one in Calderdale.
WomenCentre is a local Charity working in Kirklees and Calderdale supporting over 3000 local women a year. Women Centre offers insight, based on expertise in working with women and girls facing severe and multiple disadvantages across a range of sectors. That can be shared in order to develop local and national agendas, and make the case for women-centred solutions.
The main areas of service delivery are Domestic Abuse and Women’s Health and Wellbeing. Women also receive support with practical issues such as parenting, managing debt, and housing and immigration issues.
The services reach many women who are at points of crisis: women experiencing acute and chronic mental health difficulties; in contact with the criminal justice system; women refugees and asylum seekers; women in poverty; those with drug and alcohol problems; and victims of domestic violence and their children.
