Peer Group Drop-In Service

peer group serviceWhat is it?

Our Peer Group Drop-in service is open to all women in need of emotional support, advice and information, and operates from our premises at 72 High Street, Kemptown.

We are open and free to access and provide a safe women-only environment for all women. Volunteers offer support and are able to provide information about specialist organisations. Many women come to us in need of a kind ear or a supportive voice, company, advice on other services at BWC or come to use the computers, phones, or printers. We also run a Financial Inclusion service and Food Bank from our premises.

For more information:

If you would like to contact the Peer Group Drop-In for more information or support, please call 01273 698036 (option 1) or e-mail

We offer a confidential and non-discriminatory environment. However, the Peer Group Drop-In is on the first floor and access can be restrictive for wheelchair users and women who have difficulty with stairs.

Changes to Peer Group Drop-In

Brighton Women’s Centre City-wide Women’s Hubs

We are pleased to announce that Brighton Women’s Centre in partnership with Mothers Uncovered has been successful in receiving funding from Brighton and Hove City Council which allows us to carry on providing a Peer Group Drop-In.

What will change and when?

  1. From the week commencing Monday 24th April, Thursday Drop-Ins will move to Wednesdays from 11.30-1.30pm to run alongside Food Bank (which will remain 12.30-2pm).
  1. From the week commencing Monday 22nd May, there will no longer to be a Drop-In on Mondays. This will allow the Coordinator to begin consultation with women in order to establish a Drop-In in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean.
  1. From the week commencing Monday 22nd May, the Tuesday evening Drop-In will move to Thursday evenings between 5-7pm.
  1. The funding provides us with time and resources to consult and then pilot women only Drop-Ins in new communities in Brighton and Hove. This will happen over a staged three year period. At the end of three three-years funding period we intend to be running:
  • A weekly Hub from 72 High Street which will incorporate a Drop-In, Food Bank and Essentials Shop, Holistic Therapies
  • A weekly Drop-In in the Moulsecoomb & Bevendean area
  • A weekly Drop-In in the Hangleton & Knoll area
  • Mothers Uncovered groups and activities

We welcome your feedback and want to answer your questions and hear you ideas and concerns.  Please come and speak to us at Drop-In sessions and during Food Bank.
