The National Board of Catholic Women

The National Board of Catholic Women has had links with The Newman Association for a long time and has a strong theological base. The Association uses its wide network to give active support to the NBCW's work. The Board provides the Association with women's perspectives on theological issues and spirituality. The Newman Association values the Board's links with national Catholic bodies; and its membership of secular organisations such as the National Council of Women helps to ensure that the informed views of Catholic women are heard in secular society.

The National Board of Catholic Women actively seeks to promote the presence, participation and responsibilities of Catholic women in the Church and society in order to enable them to fulfil their evangelical mission and to work for the Common Good.  It is a forum in which Catholic Women in England and Wales (members of Catholic organisations and other women representatives of diocesan structures) exchange experience, express their hopes and concerns and make recommendations on the life and mission of the Church. It forwards to Government and others, submissions dealing with matters of public interest and concern.
