specialist support for black and minoritised women + girls
The Angelou Centre is one of the few surviving black-led women’s organisations in the North East, having been in operation for 29 years, and is now recognized nationally as a specialist community organisation and training provider working predominantly with the most excluded communities of women in the North East. Critically, the Angelou Centre provides a specialist integrative programme of support for black and minoritised women and children who have been subject to domestic and sexual violence, face multiple forms of discrimination and often have associative recovery needs.
What we offer
The Angelou Centre’s holistic Violence Against Women and Girls’ services comprise of refuge accommodation (including provision for women without recourse to funds), specialist advocacy, outreach, therapeutic support, and recovery programmes for survivors.
All Angelou Centre projects are developed in consultation with our service users who are supported by a highly qualified and well-trained team of multilingual and culturally diverse staff and volunteers. Our passion and commitment to advancing the economic and social independence of black and minority women and children in the North East has enabled us to establish and develop an organisation that addresses the wide- ranging needs of our beneficiaries.
