The women’s centre is a place where members of the local community concerned with women’s and gender-related issues can access the resources needed.

Women will be able to share space and information in order to work together toward common goals.

Women’s and gender-related issues will be the main focus, so that the needs of women will continue to be addressed. PRESENCE will benefit, mainly, isolated and in-need women as Rivers continues to empower women seeking to improve their lifestyles and Rivers will support them to remove obstacles and challenges along the way.

The wider community also seeks to benefit from investing in local women helping to grow, develop and inspire them. Encouraging community engagements enables women to better understand the community they live in and allows for organisations to better understand the complicated needs of our local women.
