Past Events:

We celebrated International Women’s Day 2019 on March 8 and subsequently won an award for Best Practice, given to us by the International Womens’ Day organisation. We hosted a free, fun packed lunchtime event at Bewbush Centre, Crawley. We decided to use the event to showcase our work in the community and shine a spotlight on the local women who go above and beyond to support the most vulnerable and isolated women within their communities.
