It is with great sadness that Women Making a Difference announce that it will cease operations on 31 March 2017.

For over 10 years the Women Making a Difference project has changed the lives of numerous women in Wales, firstly through the National Federation of Women’s Institutes and then as an independent stand-alone charity. The organisation pioneered a range of innovative and inspiring training opportunities for women to develop their confidence and skills to become involved in public life. This also including travel to countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to learn about women’s lives beyond Wales. We are immensely proud of both WMAD and the many hundreds of learners we have supported, for many of whom it has been a life changing experience.

Due to a range of factors it is no longer possible to fund the work of WMAD. On behalf of the trustees of WMAD we would like to thank everyone who has contributed and supported WMAD over the life of this amazing project.

However we know that our legacy will be the continuing confidence, energy and commitment of the women we have supported to both develop their own lives and to support public life in Wales.

During March we will be delivering the final stage of the Welsh Government funded Balancing Power project and will provide a resource signposting interested individuals to relevant organisations and initiatives in Wales.

Women at all levels of civic society are under-represented and their voices are not being heard. Women Making a Difference educates and empowers women across Wales to have the skills, confidence, and mind-set to become the leaders in their communities and decision-makers at all levels of public and political life.
