History of the Shankill Women's Centre

Shankill Women’s Centre formed in 1987, is located in a disadvantaged ward in North Belfast. It arose because of an expressed local need for women specific education, support and training. 

Originally located in ‘The Hummingbird’ on the Shankill Road, the Centre formed the first community/statutory partnership of its kind through its move to the Shankill Centre with the North and West Health and Social Services Trust. The group continues to enjoy this relationship with the Trust and is core funded by them.
