Peer support

Nottingham Women’s Centre now has a peer support group, which runs weekly on Wednesdays 13:00 – 14:30. The group is for women to explore their mental and emotional wellbeing in a safe space facilitated by our therapists. This is a talking group, which can explore a chosen theme or involve free discussion.

When we share our lived experience we feel heard, supported and less alone. Women have wide range of coping skills and describe feeling supported but also raising their self-esteem by supporting others.

You do not need to be a member of Nottingham Women’s Centre to attend the group, just turn up on a Wednesday and the staff will make you welcome. Peer support group is free and you do not need to bring anything with you except yourself and your experience.

Well Now Cafe cooks up healthy meals for the community

Did you know that we now have a community cafe up and running here at the Centre?

Well Now facilitator Michelle runs the Well Now Cafe, which started on 26th September. Michelle plans and creates delicious healthy meals, served monthly on Tuesdays between 12-2pm.

We want to help grow a vibrant space where local women can meet, chat and enjoy home-cooked food in a friendly and creative atmosphere. The next Well Now Cafe dates are 24 October, 28 November and 19 December.

And you don’t have to book in advance, simply drop-in. Donations are welcome and will give the cafe potential to grow and increase available food options. Michelle will try wherever possible to provide a vegan meal.

The community cafe also brings the opportunity to chat about well-being based on Well Now principles. Therefore, if you would like to learn more about your relationship with food and well-being, come along to Well Now Cafe.

Finally, food is free but donations are welcome for ongoing costs. Please note food is available on a first come first served basis.
