Who we are
Women Out West is non-profit organisation offering support to all women in a safe, welcoming and women-only space. We are open to all women – some may simply wish to come down for a chat and a cuppa to meet new people!
We support women with a range of vulnerabilities, including mental wellbeing, social isolation and domestic abuse. We also provide women support with money management, debt and housing. This support can be accessed after registration through a 1:1 support appointment.
We do not offer counselling or advice, however we do offer support accessing the relevant agencies and where possible we try to get these services to come to you in our centre.
Our aim is to encourage and empower to women to reach their potential by accessing support, learning new skills, building confidence and self-esteem, developing social skills, and thus improve overall wellbeing.
To do this we offer a variety of personal development courses, social activities and 1:1 support appointments.
We work closely with Carlisle’s Gateway 4 Women as well as local agencies in order to provide support in a holistic manner, bringing services into our centre where possible.
