Based in Birkenhead, Wirral, on the old St Laurence’s School site, Tomorrow’s Women Wirral (TWW) is a women-only community charity.
Tomorrow’s Women Wirral (TWW) is a women-only community charity, based locally in Birkenhead. One of its principal aims is to offer support to women in order to prevent offending. From gaining skills and qualifications to getting support and a chat in a safe environment, all women across the Wirral are welcome.
Based in Birkenhead, Wirral, on the old St Laurence’s School site, the friendly and supportive centre can provide real support from other women, some of whom have been through and experienced prison themselves.
Tomorrow’s Women Wirral have received three years’ rent funding from the National Lottery, and have just won Community’s Connect Award (20/20 decade of health and wellbeing contribution to recycling and eco-friendliness).
