Our Women's Programme

With a focus on empowering women our Women’s Programme seeks to ensure that women’s issues are fully integrated in the formulation and conduct of local and national policy.  Staff involved support women from our targeted communities, including New Communities,  in the development of their personal, social, education and employment skills through one to one support, the provision on networking events, access to counselling for those affected by Domestic Violence, access to community education and accredited courses and, for migrant women, access to English classes.

Women4Womenhttp://www.women4women.ie
Since its inception 3 years ago women4women has gone from being a small group of committed, largely voluntary activists to a countywide network reaching hundreds of women. Our work consists of three basic strands; women’s development, integration and making women’s voices heard in decision making processes in the county. Supported and hosted by Southside Partnership the women4women network seeks to ensure that women’s issues are fully integrated in the formulation and conduct of local and national policy.

English for Migrant Women
Our English classes are held in different locations across Dun Laoghaire Rathdown.  These classes are friendly and informal, designed to meet the needs of both new arrivals and those who have been attending for some time.  We offer English courses and networking opportunities for women attending.

International Women’s Breakfasts
Our International Women’s Breakfasts are held at various locations in the county and are frequently co-hosted by the Islamic Cultural Centre. They bring together women from across the wide spectrum of diversity in the county. Through workshops, conferences, information fairs, dance, song, and the sharing of food we build strong links between women who do not normally get the chance to meet. We identify commonalities and work together to change the inclusiveness of our social environment. 12 women attended our first breakfast…now it can be anything from 70 to 200.  Click here to view pictures of a recent breakfast.
