We invite women from across the Borough and further afield who wish to improve their education and well-being or simply would like to meet new friends or to get involved.

Kilcooley Women's Centre has an average of 300 women in educational classes weekly and over 150 have participated in our healthy living project. Each week 90 children benefit from our onsite childcare facility Jellie Tots (0-2 baby room) and Smarties (2-3 pre-pre-nursery) and Magic Stars (3-4 pre nursery/playgroup).

KWC operates via a cocktail of funding packages. Running costs of the centre are supported through Department for Communities (NI) and through Ards North Down Borough Council
