We believe organisational diversity matters and we will be more accountable and better able to assess the needs of the women we support if we have a good range of perspectives within our team.

We are a charity that works alongside women who've experienced gender-based violence, exploitation and/or displacement.

None of this would be possible without the input and support of a skilled and engaged Board of Trustees.
