STATE RESOURCE CENTRE FOR WOMEN
The primary objective of SRCW is to work for holistic empowerment of women in the state cutting across sectors. It facilitates government and other stakeholders involved in women empowerment issues to implement Gender sensitive programmes, laws and schemes through effective coordination. SRCW regularly reviews and evaluates existing policies, programmes and legislations impacting women and bring suitable recommendations before the State Mission Authority (SMA) and National Resource Centre for Women (NRCW) for suitable measures. SRCW creates an environment through awareness generation to fuel demand by women for schemes/programmes and facilitates the process through which the gap between demand and supply can be reduced.
The State resource Centre for Women (SRCW) in Tamil Nadu has been established as per guidelines of National Mission on Empowerment of Women at the Commissionerate of Social Welfare. The Commissioner of Social Welfare is the Nodal Officer for SRCW. The staff of SRCW have been positioned and various activities of SRCW have been initiated from 27.01.2014.
