Longford Women’s Link (LWL) is a dynamic social enterprise linking women together to make their community safe and equal. LWL identifies and addresses key inequalities that prevent women in Longford achieving full social / economic potential.
We provide women-centred services, capacity-building and local/national advocacy. From its origins in 1995 in a small office in Longford Town, LWL now operates out of Willow House, which includes a purpose built, state-of-the-art Women’s Community Education Facility.
Although a local, Longford-based organisation, the impact of our work is also visible regionally and nationally.Women, their families and therefore the entire community benefit from: A dedicated Women’s Community Education Facility, Domestic Violence and Counselling Services, onsite and mobile childcare facility (recognising the barriers for women posed by lack of childcare), Female Entrepreneurship programme and the Manifesto Group (women engaging with local democratic structures)
