What Our Students Say

I am now in part-time employment because I was able to sit my exams in the centre and my child attends the nursery all because Shankill Women's Centre made me believe I could do anything. I tell everyone to go even just to mingle with others. Shankill Women's Centre changed my life
Shankill Women's Centre
Not only was it amazing increasing my self-esteem and learning new, relevant skills, but they looked after my little one too so I could focus on what I was doing. The team does a fantastic job and the service is invaluable to the women they help. Thank you so much!
Natasha & Chara were fantastic at leading the course and I was lucky to be part of a fantastic group of other ladies as well. I now feel more equipped to deal with whatever life throws at me and have the confidence to take more chances.
