Kyra Women’s Project

We are a registered charity in York that exists to help local women make positive change in their lives. We offer a range of courses, therapies, life skills and events for women, all from our relaxed, comfy, city centre location. Our door will always be open until every woman in our area feels safe, supported and able to be the person they were always meant to be.

Take that first step. We can’t wait to meet you.
