The Millin Charity provide holistic support services for women in Newcastle & Gateshead.

We’ve provided specialist enterprise training, advice and support for women in Newcastle & Gateshead for over 20 years.

Our projects aim to make a real difference to the lives of the women we work with. We help women set up their own businesses, gain employability skills, access training and be part of a supportive community of women working towards financial independence.

We work with women who are typically defined as hard to reach who face multiple disadvantages due to lack of local opportunity, language barriers, limited skills & education, cycles of ongoing poverty, racial discrimination and lack of self-belief.

Through engaging with The Millin Charity, women gain the confidence and skills to not only achieve their goals but to improve their well-being, their connections and their opportunities.

The word ‘millin’ means ‘togetherness’ in Urdu, Bangladeshi and Hindi – and this is reflected in our welcoming community that the women we work with become part of.
