About Us

The Women’s Resource and Development Agency (WRDA) has been working with women and providing support to women’s groups and networks across Northern Ireland since 1983.

We work with women to achieve social, economic, political and cultural transformation. We engage across all traditions with women based in the most disadvantaged urban and rural areas of Northern Ireland. Our work covers a wide scope and keeps us right at the heart of local communities.

 Our Strategic Goals for 2014-2020

⇒ Empowerment: To develop the capacity of women from disadvantaged urban and rural communities to tackle inequalities affecting them.
⇒ Policy and Advocacy: To advance women’s equality and participation in all aspects of policy and decision-making.
⇒ Tackling Inequalities: To work towards the elimination of inequalities affecting women.
Leadership and Infrastructure Support: To provide leadership, infrastructural support and advocacy within the women’s sector.
Organisational Development: To strengthen the capacity of the organisation to carry out its role effectively.
