Our History

Powerhouse For Women (Powerhouse) was established in 1985 to provide a place of safety and independent living support for women with learning disabilities , particularly those who had experienced abuse, sexual, financial and neglect. For over a decade Powerhouse has continued to co-produce a range of services for women with learning disabilities, particularly those with low to moderate needs, to live their lives in the ways that they choose. It provides a range of activities that support independence, enables peer support and strengthens the voice of women with learning disabilities in the development of services.

Powerhouse is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee and is highly regarded by its services users, Newham Council and other third sector partners. It is well run, grounded in the principles of personalisation and co-production.
