Partnership Working

Women Making a Difference is fundamentally based on the principles of partnership working. We would often be unable to deliver our programmes in communities across Wales were it not for our continued commitment to this principle and the support of some amazing organisations who want to provide our learning programme to their service users.

Some of the partners we work with include:

  • Taff Housing Association
  • Cadwyn Housing Association
  • Cardiff Community Housing Association
  • Adamsdown Resource Centre
  • Cardiff Communities First
  • The Workers Educational Association (WEA) Wales
  • Carmarthenshire County Council
  • Cardiff University Centre for Lifelong Learning
  • The Equality & Human Rights Commission
  • British Council
  • Welsh Government
  • National Assembly for Wales

And of course the National Federation of Women's Institutes who host our project in their Wales office.

Below is a list of links to our partner's websites, as well as some others which may be of interest.
