Kilcooley Womens' Centre


Kilcooley Womens’ Centre provide a range of services including a playgroup, childcare provision, carer support, mental health programmes, youth programmes, activities/programmes, training, and a foodbank. Supporting approximately 500 people weekly.

The project the group applied for was their social supermarket which is based in Kilcooley Square Bangor. The supermarket was set up to reduce food poverty, and reduce food wastage. The charity required additional storage to allow them to accept more donations from their suppliers. Donations are provided by Lidl, M&s, Tesco, and ASDA. People visiting the supermarket will also gain access to training, employability, debt advice, benefit checks, and programmes- the full wraparound service. This will allow them to benefit 100 people and their families through this vital service.

In 2021, Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland funded £4,168 towards a fridge, a freezer, additional storage units, and a till to allow the charity to continue to support the local community.
