Services for Women

Nottingham Women’s Centre is run by women, for women. We aim to help all women to gain the confidence and skills to achieve their potential and become stronger and more independent. We provide a safe and supportive environment in which women can do this, either by taking part in training or activities, getting support and services, or campaigning and becoming active in bringing about change. We’ve been around for almost 50 years – watch our film to get to know us better.


Our building is currently closed, but we are still providing our services by telephone and online. We know that social distancing may continue for some time to come, so we are still working hard on supporting women through this difficult time.

Where appropriate we are delivering the material that we would normally deliver in groups on the phone instead, on a one-to-one basis. We are also offering practical support - for example with foodbank access - and emotional support for women who are struggling with isolation. As much as possible we are responding to individual need on a case by case basis.

If you need support or advice around benefits or access to a food parcel or are facing some other financial crisis, please call us on this temporary number - 07930825030 - from 10am - 2pm Monday to Friday. You can also email us at [email protected] We aim to respond within 24 hours.

We are also continuing to run some activities and courses online - have a look at our 'What's Available Online' booklet to find out more.

Finally, we are supporting many women facing difficult challenges at the moment, and we have set up a crisis fund to provide assistance. Money raised will help support local women with essentials such as phone credit to stay in touch with family and support services, electricity meter credit or buying essential items such as a fridge. Please donate if you can at the link below.



Donations help us deliver invaluable support to our service users. If you want to donate directly to the centre you can now do this online. Keep up to date with the latest news from the Nottingham Women’s Centre

“As the CEO of Nottingham Women’s Centre I believe my experience of running a women-only space has value within the current debates regarding the Gender Recognition Act (GRA). Nottingham Women’s Centre has been open to all women, including trans women, since 1998. I find it bewildering that campaigners against updating the GRA say they want…
