The Board of Directors of Greenway Women’s Group, affectionately known as the BODs, are all women from the local community and surrounding areas who volunteer their time, energy and commitment to providing vital services.
The work of Greenway Women’s Group is based upon the principles of Community Development and Active Participation, as well as Community and Individual Capacity Building, involving local women in identifying and responding to local needs in an active and responsible manner within the limits of available funding.
The Board of Directors provide support for volunteers and staff members at Greenway Womens Centre while also representing Greenway Women’s Group on various committees and external boards.
The Board of Directors work in partnership with many other women’s groups and organisations throughout Northern Ireland in the community, voluntary, statutory, public and private sectors to develop services for local women in the areas of childcare, health, employment, housing and finance.
Greenway Women’s Group exists to provide positive opportunities for women to achieve their potential, through recognizing and respecting them as individuals. We achieve this by breaking down barriers which prevent women’s full participation in society; specifically targeting social need within Cregagh and surrounding areas.
