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 dropinservices@womenscentre.org.uk

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.

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

We are excited to announce that this year Brighton Women’s Centre will be partnering with Mothers Uncovered to roll out our Peer Group Drop-In sessions to other venues across Brighton.

What will change and when?

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.
