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.  We currently run two sessions per week, one from St Anne’s Day Centre (61 Upper St James’s St, Brighton BN2 1PR) and one from our own offices at 22 Richmond Place, Brighton BN2 9NA.  We are open and free to access and provide a safe women-only environment for all women.

During Drop-in times volunteers are on-hand to offer support and are able to provide information about specialist organisations.  Many women come in need of a kind ear or a supportive voice, company, advice on other services or to use our IT facilities.  Women can also be linked-in with our food bank or holistic therapies by attending a drop-in session.

For more information:

If you would like to contact the Peer Group Drop-In for more information or support, please call 07472 085374 or e-mail dropinservices@womenscentre.org.uk

We offer a confidential and non-discriminatory environment. Our Wednesday Peer Group Drop-in is fully accessible, however, the Thursday evening group 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.
