Story

Help us buy some purple bricks and help local women!

The Centre offers women and girls from across Hull access to domestic violence and abuse services, sexual health services, outreach support, nursery provision, accredited courses, a housing service, legal services, a volunteer programme and a young women’s participation project. 
Established in 2000, it has directly helped more than 4000 women, and
engaged with many thousands more.

“As our services have grown, we’ve outgrown our current space’” explains Ann Clarkson, Centre Coordinator.  “We’re
based in two pre-fab semis that have been knocked together, and although it’s served us well over the last 16 years, it’s no longer fit for purpose.  We’re practically sitting on each other’s
knees!  We’re ambitious and want to grow the support we offer to local women, but we need more space to do it in. The new building will increase the nursery space and double the learning space, as
well as housing our new legal service, Affordable Justice, and all our other services.  More space and modern facilities will directly help us to help more women and families in crisis. “

Work should start on the Centre later this year, with the new building open for business during 2017, in time to help celebrate the City of Culture.
