West End Women and Girls Centre is the first and only open access, community based women and girls centre in Newcastle, we aim to build the power of women and girls, who have been and continue to be disenfranchised. We seek to drive positive change in the world, our community and in women and girls lives.
We do this through group work where women and girls have the opportunity to meet, have fun, learn skills, look at issues relevant their lives and generally build confidence in a safe and supportive environment.

We are welcoming, inclusive and bold family of women and girls working together to build power.
We are powered by the local community; all services are developed based on their expressed needs and are reflected throughout the board of trustees, staff team and membership.
No matter who you are, what you look like, who you love, how much money you have, what your religious beliefs are or where you are from, if you identify as a woman West End Women and Girls Centre welcomes you.
We provide a safe space for women and girls to ask inquisitive questions, sharing commonalities and growing community.
Our work changes lives and places, relationships cascade out of the centre and into the wider community, changing social spaces as well as private ones.
From Estate Matriarchs to teenage Peer Educators developing female pioneers since 1981.
We are passionate and determined to create social change in the world, our community and in women and girls lives.
We have fun whilst we joyfully smash the patriarchy together.
Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome here
To our friends, neighbours, visitors, we say: you are welcome here. No matter who you are, what you look like, who you love, how much money you have, what your religious beliefs are, or where you are from, West End Women and Girls Centre is for you.
Like many, we at West End Women and Girls Centre are concerned about the divisive, hateful speech and actions we are hearing and witnessing across our country. While these feelings are not new for many, we recognise that this is a crucial moment to take a stand for what we believe is right. It is important that we do not become complacent in our mission to build the power of women and girls and drive positive change that reflects and celebrates the diversity of our communities.
West End Women and Girls Centre is committed to re-examining and strengthening our continuing efforts to ensure the centre is a safe and welcoming place for everyone. If you have any suggestions for how we can make the centre better, please send us an email with your thoughts.
