Scarborough Women's Centre is a unique resource centre which empowers women and girls so they can make long term, positive changes with confidence.
We provide information, education and support services to women in the transition away from abuse and isolation, towards economic and emotional independence.
Women using the Centre come from every continent of the world, and range in age from 15 to 80.
With your support, women can make a brighter future for themselves and their children, and be a vibrant part of the community. Thank you!
