We offer personalised, trauma-responsive support to give women the tools to lead safe and flourishing lives.

Doorway Women's Services

We work with women who face multiple disadvantages and unmet needs. This can include homelessness, mental and physical health, substance-use, domestic abuse, social isolation, and contact with the criminal justice system.
For over 30 years, Doorway Women's Service has built a specialism working with women that sell sex and/or experience sexual violence.

International Women's Day : 8th March, 2023

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness about discrimination. Take action to drive gender parity.

IWD belongs to everyone, everywhere. Inclusion means all IWD action is valid.
