Support Services

Our Telephone Support and Information service and Online Chat is open three days a week to women in need of emotional support, advice and information.


Support and Information Line

Our face-to-face drop-in services are temporarily closed due to Covid-19.

Please call our Support and Information line instead 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 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.


The foodbank is open on Wednesday afternoons and is accessible via prior appointment. Women can self-refer during phone line times, or can email support@womenscentre.org.uk

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.

“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.”
