  • Mission statement

    Shama Womens Centre assists women from hard to reach communities to empower themselves with job skills and education with the aim of helping them integrate with the wider community. We achieve this by offering opportunities for training, education, IAG, NVQs, ESOL and a range of recreational and cultural activites. We have an in-house creche where qualified, friendly staff look after the young children while their mothers are learning elsewhere in the building. Over the years we have successfully placed hundreds of women into jobs, thus removing them from the cycle of benefit reliance.
