The Asha Women’s Centre is a community project offering women in Worcestershire a gender specific service in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Here vulnerable women in Worcestershire can access a wide range of community resources that will improve both social and economic proficiency and participation, as well as raise levels of emotional competence. We aim to enable and empower women to tackle problems that may contribute to isolation and social exclusion.
Asha helps women to address their problems and achieve their potential by offering a starting point from which to achieve personal development and improved economic stability. The ethos of the Centre is normalisation, and enabling women to take control of their lives is an objective for all.
The most common problems are isolation, lack of confidence, depression, phobias, domestic violence and abuse, housing issues, lone parenthood, substance misuse, lack of family support, financial problems and reliance on benefits. The Asha Centre helps women to address these issues through services provided on-site as well as helping them engage with other agencies for assistance.
We offer a range of resources and support interventions which encompass advice, support and educational and employment opportunities that engage women and support them to rebuild their lives.
