We want to hear from you!

Help through Crisis is a 5 year project funded by the Big Lottery Fund which enables us to work with some of the most disadvantaged women in Nottinghamshire to support them to overcome financial hardship and debt, access training and other services they may need to gain self-confidence, better mental health and build resilience to cope with the issues they face. The project will also allow us to give those women a voice to better inform and influence the local and national policy decisions that affect women.

As part of our new Help Through Crisis project we would like to hear from all women about the issues that they face. From time to time we may ask you and other women who use the Centre to tell us in more detail about your lives and experiences. This could be through a survey or by attending a focus group. This information is important to us in helping us to provide better services for women in Nottinghamshire. It helps us to get funding for services and to change policies affecting women’s lives for the better and to continue our work in supporting women through hardship and to make positive choices. We would really like to hear from women who can take part in focus groups in November and February. If you are interested please get in touch.



WoLAN – our history project

WoLAN (Women’s Liberation and After in Nottingham) was a history project run by Nottingham Women’s Centre to explore the history of women involved in establishing our organisation and in the Women’s Liberation Movement in the 1970s and onwards.

The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Project and ran during 2013-14. Some of the information from the project can be found on the WoLAN blog.

We archived materials uncovered as part of the project. These can be accessed through Nottinghamshire Archives. The reference for the collection at the archives is ‘DD/NWC’ – this will help you if you want to search through the archives online.

An overview of our history was published in the book ‘Women’s Liberation and After in Nottingham – a portrait’, by Dr Natasha Picot. You can purchase a copy of the book through our reception for £5.
