Support and Information Phone Line

Please call our Support and Information Phone Line on 07842 311 406 during the following hours:

  • Wednesdays 10am - 12pm

This service is open to all women in need of emotional support, advice and information.

During these times our trained volunteers are on hand to offer support and information. Many women call in need of a kind ear or a supportive voice, or information on specialist services. Women can also be linked in with other BWC services, for example our foodbank or therapeutic support via the support line.

We offer a confidential and non-discriminatory environment.

For more information please contact support@womenscentre.org.uk

Women's Well-being Hubs

Our Women's Well-being Hubs are free for any women looking for in person, practical or emotional support and information in a safe, women-only environment. Come and speak to our trained staff and volunteers and connect with other local women who are using the hub over a cup of tea.

Please call our Support and Information Phone Line on 07842 311 406 for more information.

The Out Of Hours Hub operates from Cornerstone Community Centre Church Road, Hove, BN3 2FL every Monday from 6 - 8pm.

The daytime hubs operate from:

St Marys Church Hall, 61 St James Street, Brighton BN2 1PR every Wednesday from 1.30 – 3.30pm.

The Well-being Hub, 18 Preston Park Avenue, BN1 6HL every Thursday from 10am - 12pm.

Please note that these services are dependent on volunteer availability. Whilst we endeavour to run our services each week as stated above, occasionally we will have to close at limited notice; for example, in the event of volunteer shortages.

Foodbank

Our foodbank is open on Wednesday afternoons and is accessible via prior appointment only. We provide a variety of essential goods including fresh fruit and vegetables, bread and baked goods, toiletries, period products and store cupboard items.

Women can self-refer for one-off or fortnightly appointments by:

“Drop-in makes me very happy, I have made new friends and it is a lovely caring social environment. I feel I have new family each time I visit.”
