Hanes gweinyddol / bywgraffyddol:
Swansea Women's Centre opened in 1979. It has since provided a continuing focus for feminist activities in South West Wales, and has been actively committed to the aims of the women's movement. It provides a regular meeting place for women's organisations, organises social events, and offers training in various areas under the guiding principle of promoting self-help and self-reliance among women. All services are completely free to participants, with free childcare provided for some training and events. In particular, the Centre encourages the involvement of women who belong to groups who have traditionally been discriminated against, such as black and ethnic minority women; women with mental and physical health problems; lesbian women and women on a low income. The Centre works in a woman-centric, accessible way and is completely committed to involving all women in decision-making at all levels. It is managed by a voluntary committee, and since the 1990s has secured grant funding to employ staff to undertake administrative and training roles. Initially, the Centre was based in premises on Singleton Street; it later moved to Alexandra Road, and is now based at Mansel Street.
