Join us to celebrate 25 years of the Angelou Centre with an evening of food and live entertainment, to celebrate 25 years of Women Empowering Women with the Angelou Centre. During the last quarter of a century, The Angelou Centre has not only supported the most vulnerable BME women by providing sanctuary in times of violence, homelessness and destitution, but has built a wrap-around holistic support service including advocacy, counselling and training. It exists as an open access hub of black feminist expertise, focussed and informed by the lived experiences of survivors of VAWG to provide guidance and training to mainstream organisations and agencies to improve the impact and results for black minoritised women and children survivors far beyond the reach of their own services.

It is only with the support from people like you that we are able to empower black minoritised women and survivors of domestic violence, sexual abuse harmful practices such as FGM, forced marriage and honour abuse, to survive, thrive and achieve their potential. We invite you to join us in celebration of all women of colour, and support us to grown further and extend the impact we can make in the lives of women for years to come.
