Our History

Millan Centre is a purpose built centre in the heart of the Manningham community. It was established in 1988 by a group of adult education tutors working with local women. The women identified a need for an easily accessed welcoming centre with good childcare where they could socialise and learn English within an easy distance of homes. Acceptability to women and their families was essential.

The centre is independent and the only area provision specifically for women and girls. All project work is carried out through funds obtained from grant making bodies or through partnerships.
