We believe that all women and girls have the right to reach their potential and to live their lives free from poverty and violence. We are passionate about what we do.
We know it makes a difference.

Through our work we know that women and girls affected by poverty, trauma and abuse have the potential to transform their lives. We support them by providing a safe environment and high quality, gender-responsive, trauma-informed support.

New Dawn New Day has worked to support the wellbeing of women and girls in Leicester and Leicestershire for over 30 years. We started out as a community-based women’s centre in the 1980s, and we now deliver a range of services to vulnerable and socially excluded women designed to meet their multiple and complex needs.

Our Approach


Our approach to working with women is holistic and trauma informed. Women’s lives are complicated. They often have multiple needs. We take a holistic approach which works with the whole woman, not just one issue or problem area.
