TCWP is a charitable organisation that is governed by a Board of Trustees (Management Committee). The Organisation’s work is managed through a service of sub-committees that cover services, building and finance. Any Turkish-speaking woman can become a member of TCWP and vote at the Annual General Meeting. There is an annual membership fee of £40.00 but although we try to maintain an equality framework of collection from all women who regularly receive advice, support and befriending, this fee is not a statutory requirement to become a member but it helps us to offer a better service to the women we serve.
Once a member, all activities organized by TCWP will be open to the women. However, there will at times be a nominal fee for certain activities/trips that members participate in.
Turkish Cypriot Women’s Project believes in developing and providing services that are essential for women and their families. The organisation believes that in order to achieve this it is essential to consult and integrate women’s needs. One of the fundamental principles of TCWP is to empower and enhance women; we provide a multitude of activities to further develop their skills and knowledge. These sessions may involve bringing in external agencies to provide the expertise on certain issues. We have seen that these interactive sessions/focus groups can build confidence and prepare women for many areas of their lives.
