Kerry Women's Centre
We are excited to announce that we have undergone a rebranding and are now known as the Kerry Women's Centre! This new name reflects our mission to empower and support women in Kerry and beyond. We remain committed to providing a safe and inclusive space for women of all backgrounds and experiences to access the support and resources they need.
Welcome to the Kerry Womens Centre, an organisation dedicated to engage, educate and empower women. We support women through the provision of information, support, counselling and training on issues affecting women, while encouraging respect, diversity and equality.
We will do all that we can for the women in our community. We are committed to guiding and supporting women in a non-judgemental, positive environment. No matter what the challenge or situation you find yourself in, we are here for you.
There are numerous situations in life that women can find themselves in where external support may be required. While there are plenty of helpful resources available we perhaps are not all aware of them or how to get in touch with them. We have attempted to provide a comprehensive list of the most commonly required services that are available locally and nationally to support women when they need it most. We are also only too happy to help you get support or advise you in anyway we can.
