Kyra Women's Project

Kyra Women’s Project is a volunteer led charity based in the centre of York, UK. We support women to make positive changes in their lives by providing a safe and welcoming space where any woman can relax in a non-judgemental environment.

We offer a range of courses, therapies, life skills and events for women, full details can be found in our monthly newsletter. Also, check the events calendar for times and dates of our Drop in sessions and courses.

We are an inclusive charity open to all those identifying as a woman. Kyra is supportive of the LGBT community and our volunteers take the time to investigate whether or not we can assist every individual who contacts us for help. If we do not have the skill set to help those who approach us, we will use our best endeavours to sign post them to organisations who will be able to help.

After much discussion we have made the decision we are not in a position to support people who are non-binary or gender fluid.  Support is available through York LGBT Forum, Mesmac, Survive, IDAS and Mind.

We will Fly

Song dedicated to Kyra

We will Fly is a song written and performed by our members Pat Miller and Beverley Kyra Grace which they dedicated to Kyra Women’s Project.

At Kyra we are really proud of this achievement because we appreciate the difficulties that had to be overcome to make this beautiful and moving song.

Jo Brock shares her experience

Here, member Jo Brock, talks about her past struggles with addiction after receiving support from Kyra. Jo hit her crisis point last Christmas after being addicted to alcohol for around 7 years but having been sober for a year she wants others to know that help is always available.

With Kyra Everything is Possible

Kyra members and the supporting volunteer team from the Kyra Drama group who acted in the 2017 York Theatre Royal production of the story of York’s suffragette movement called Everything is Possible chat with That’s York TV about their empowering experience.

Their achievement should not be underestimated.

We really do feel that Everything is Possible at Kyra and that this is a good example of just one of the ways that Kyra has been able to support women to make positive change in their lives.
