RESPECT SUPPORT CONFIDENCE
Set up by local women in 1993, WEB Merseyside (Wellbeing Empowerment and Brighter Futures) has grown from a small support network of local women into a vital community based organisation that supports women, men and children through a variety of issues which affect many people throughout their life. Legal charitable name & formerly known as Women’s Enterprising Breakthrough; we changed to WEB Merseyside in 2010 due to our increased work with men and boys.
WEB’s aims to provide a high quality service to women, men and children which provides:
- Time, space and flexible support to help them regain confidence and self-esteem
- Opportunities to explore personal choices to support their personal growth
- Opportunities for personal growth and skills development to enable them to get more from life.
Over 7,500 people have used and benefited from the centre since we started, and many have come back as volunteers to help others gain in the same way. We offer one-to-one listening support, personal development workshops, counselling sessions, group activities, days out and lots more.
Among a number of other prestigious awards, WEB was honored to receive ‘The Queens Award for Voluntary Service in 2007’. WEB we’re one of only two organisations from Merseyside to receive the Award that Year out of 253 nominations.
WEB Merseyside is established as a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. We work very much on a user-led basis making us a unique service provider in the region.
We rely heavily on sponsorship and funding from other organisations, and are actively involved in additional fundraising events to help finance and run the centre.
