We can help women and female identified people in the north-west areas of Northern Ireland, border areas and in general, we will aim to help anyone across the province in need.

Foyle Women's Information Network has a range of community-based support services in place to ensure women in the north-west and surrounding areas can continue to develop their own skills and maximise their input to social, educational and political development within local areas as well as at a strategic level within Northern Ireland.

In this time of COVID-19, we continue to implement strategies to address the educational, leisure, emotional, physical, health and well being of women, as well as their cultural development.
