In some parts of the world, being a woman puts you at a disadvantage.

Like in Sussex.

We’re Brighton Women’s Centre and we’ve been supporting self-identifying women in Sussex for over 45 years. We help women from all backgrounds, facing all kinds of issues, to live happier lives.

Women dealing with bereavement or trauma, women who have been through homelessness or the criminal justice system, survivors of abuse or discrimination – we’ve welcomed them all.
