Nottingham Women's Centre

Nottingham Women’s Centre is run by women, for ALL women.

We exist to help all self identifying women achieve their aims; become stronger and more independent. We provide a safe and supportive environment in which they can do this. We help women build self confidence and independence by enabling them to address and resolve issues in their lives. We run a regular programme of training courses and other support services from within the Centre, and we regularly campaign to make issues affecting women in Nottingham heard. All this means we're a ‘one-stop shop’ for women in Nottingham - our services are available to all women, without exclusion.


Safe and supportive space for women in an all-female environment - Over 12,500 women visited the Centre between April 2019-March 2020. We also share our building with two local women’s organisations – Juno Women's Aid and Nottinghamshire Sexual Violence Support Services. This makes 30 Chaucer Street a women’s hub, offering holistic, person-centred services and supporting women with a broad range of needs.


Being the only one of its kind in the East Midlands, Nottingham Women's Library can be found on the top floor of our building and is a great resource for archive and more current material. It’s a safe space with books available to all women visiting our centre and to inspire members of the Radical Readers book club that meet here.


Targeted support for vulnerable women such as those experiencing or at risk of violence, homelessness, offending or substance misuse - We support women into education, training or employment. From April 2019 - March 2020, over 800 women attended courses, activities and classes at the Centre; over 200 volunteer positions were taken up and we were also able to secure £310,000 for women in financial hardship - including backdated benefit payments recovered.


Therapeutic services for women experiencing emotional challenges and mental health issues - Women can access tailored sessions with a female counsellor. As well as this, Peer Support Group Therapy sessions provide a supportive and encouraging environment in which women build networks and benefit from each other's support.


Lobbying, advocacy and partnership working - We are active members of a number of cross-sector forums and co-ordinate the city’s Women’s Organisations Network to help foster closer relationships between over 50 groups. We are a member of Nottingham Citizens and work with 36 other institutions to create positive change in our city and hold decision-makers to account.

In 2016 we campaigned alongside other organisations in the city to have misogyny recognised as a hate crime - and we won! In 2021 we were delighted when the rest of the UK followed suit. Read Nottingham's full misogyny hate crime story here:
