Through volunteering with us, we can help you:

  • build your confidence
  • develop your skills
  • offer training
  • connect you with others
  • help you to discover your potential

We can develop your skills in administration, marketing and film programming as well as outreach, event planning and grassroots community organising.

Everyone will get a chance to flourish in a uniquely female-friendly and supportive environment.


Women’s Chat – Wyndham Street Diner

If you’d like to meet other local women and have a social chat over a cuppa and a biscuit, then pop down to the Wyndham Street Diner for Women’s Chat.

We’re a friendly group, we chat, we learn new skills and go on trips and do activities.  As well as things like cycling, beauty treatments and cooking together, we can support you with finding work, volunteering, confidence building and courses.
