ABOUT US

 

The Falls Women’s Centre/Ionad Mhná na bhFál as a community development organisation and through long term experience and expertise responds quickly and
appropriately to community needs. These needs are not static but change and evolve as communities themselves change and evolve over time.
Over the past twenty eight years we have developed policy, practice and services aimed at the most vulnerable members of our community to break the cycle of
violence and poverty.

The Falls Women’s Centre is based in West Belfast a community recognized as one of the poorest in Western Europe. The Centre is involved in the economic
development of the community and aims to support women’s development within the area. Furthermore, the Centre is committee to exploring practical ways
of helping women to play a more prominent role in the economic life of the community through the provision of training, education, childcare, advice, advocacy,
counselling, health and well-being.

The Centre has developed many networks and partnerships over the years both at a local, regional, national and international level. These networks have provided
a means of further developing the work of the centre, sharing skills, experience, information and support to women and their families.
