We are delighted to announce that we have purchased the Women’s Centre building located on Bath Road for the Aaina Community Hub Charity, a female-led charity that has been delivering services from the site since 1997. After lengthy negotiations with the sellers and support by the National Community Lottery Fund, we are proud to have purchased a building to continue delivering life-enhancing services for women and their children in Walsall.
We would like to thank the Aaina Executive Board for both their vision and decision to purchase the building enabling the Women’s organization to become empowered and self-sufficient.

Aaina will continue with its mission to create a truly self-sustaining and empowering space for Women and their families in Walsall and will continue providing services that raise aspirations and achievements leading to positive changes to Walsall women and their families’ lives and environment.
