Dundee International Women's Centre (DIWC) seeks to engage, educate and empower women from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, to help them achieve their personal goals. They provide educational, recreational and social activities, as well as employment training, information and advice services for disadvantaged and/or excluded women from over eighty countries.
DIWC works in partnership with many organisations to promote the personal development of women by encouraging active participation, leadership and citizenship in society.
The Centre was established in 1969 as part of an Urban Aid Programme. It was based in the Educational Priority Area experiment in Hilltown area of the city. A voluntary group of women, which came to be known as the Dundee International Women’s Group, set out to visit immigrant families and to offer help in integrating them into the community, particularly by teaching English.
