managing director, North Wales Women's Centre
Gemma has been the driving force behind the North Wales Women’s Centre and it’s development. From the early start in 2001 as an IT training project for 140 women she went on to secure funding to develop a one stop shop for women in West Rhyl, the most deprived ward in Wales. The Centre has evolved to provide support, training and interventions for women from all backgrounds and situations.
Gemma has overseen the development of services from 3 staff in 2001 to presently 15 staff supported by 40 volunteers and has brought more than £5m of resources to North Wales to empower more than 3000 women to improve their lives.
