When a woman is empowered, women are empowered. Each new achievement reinforces us all.

We work with women so they achieve success and greater prosperity, become leaders and to connect with each other.

We are promoters of women's social and economic development in the UK

The Women’s Organisation is the largest developer and deliverer of training and support for women in the UK. We deliver services locally in Merseyside and Greater Manchester, with a reach across the North West and deliver projects across the world.

We work with women from diverse communities and backgrounds, enabling, assisting and inspiring them to believe in their abilities, to flourish in both new and existing businesses and in employment, and to take a full and active part in their communities. We enable women to access the funding and facilities, experience and expertise that they need to succeed.
