Support Services

Our Support and Information Phone Line is open two days a week to women in need of emotional support, advice and information.


Our Support and Information Phone Line and Foodbank will not be operating next week (29th & 30th June). Services will resume as usual the following week.

Support and Information Phone Line

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

  • Wednesdays 10am - 12pm 
  • Thursdays 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.


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

We offer a confidential and non-discriminatory environment.

Please note that this service is 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.


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:

  • calling 07842 311 406 on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10am - 12pm;
  • by leaving a voicemail on the number above OR
  • by emailing support@womenscentre.org.uk
