Getting in touch with us:
For general questions about the Centre and its services, or to find out more about our courses, activities and events please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re planning a fundraising event or would like to make a monetary donation to the Centre and would like some support, please contact: email@example.com
Please direct any press enquiries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: Due to the number of requests we receive and our limited resources, we are unfortunately unable to provide personal support to student projects, including student journalism. There is lots of information on our website including many of our campaigns and reports which are all available to download, so please feel free to take any information you need from these. If we have issued a statement on a recent news event you are likely to find this on our social media channels as well. Links to these are in our footer below.
What we don’t accept (but thank you for thinking of us!):
We have very limited space for donations at the Centre and so we’re unable to accept donations of:
- Clothing. If you’re looking to make a clothing donation you could try Shareware (for women’s clothes) or Baby Basics (for baby clothes).
- Furniture. You could try The Arches for these instead.
- Baby toys
What we do accept:
If you would like to offer donations of the below then we’re very grateful! Please email: email@example.com or call us to arrange this.
- Computer equipment
- Other types of technology
- Dried/long-life foods
- Baby toiletries (including nappies, baby powder etc.)
We get an incredibly high volume of requests for support with academic research, consultations, etc. As the majority of our staff time goes into providing frontline services we are unfortunately unable to assist with the majority of them.
In some cases, where a piece of work intersects with the Centre’s own priorities or will directly benefit the women we work with, we may be able to get involved.
If you would like to submit an enquiry about this, please fill out the below form so we have the information we need.
Academic / research / consultation request
If you would like to invite someone from NWC to attend an event (e.g. community information fair) or speak at a session, please fill out the form below.
Please bear in mind that as the majority of our staff time goes into providing frontline services, we unfortunately aren’t able to attend everything we are invited to. Advanced notice is needed for us to be able to make arrangements – we recommend submitting this form at least 4 weeks before your event. Thank you!
Event invitation / speaker request
Sadly, due to high levels of demand we are unable to accept general applications to volunteer with us. However, we do post details of any available volunteering opportunities on our Facebook page and other social media channels whenever they arise so keep an eye out there!
You can see all our latest job vacancies here. Please follow the information on each post for details on how to apply.
As a small charity we are unable to oversee requests for work experience. Sorry – but we appreciate you thinking of us!
Getting to the Centre
Access is via the front door, up a ramp with a doorbell/intercom mounted at an accessible height.
We are based in a listed building so unfortunately, not all of our rooms are accessible to those with mobility difficulties. Access to the first and second floors is up flights of stairs with 20 steps in between each floor and chairs to rest in-between.
You can access the ground floor via wheelchair either through the main entrance or from entrance to the rear of the building. If access is required to the lower ground floor, we’ll need to inform Reception first so that a staff member can be available to let you in.
The pavements on connecting streets to the Centre are well surfaced and reasonably flat. It takes 10 minutes to walk here from Market Square but there is a small hill to get up Chaucer Street!
Bus travel to the Centre is available from several parts of Nottingham.
The closest bus stop to the Centre is Clarendon Street (Stop Y9). From here it only takes a few minutes to walk to the Centre.
All Nottingham city buses are wheelchair and buggy accessible.
The nearest tram stop is Trent University.
Nottingham Trams provide access for all – with accessibility for wheelchairs and buggies.
The closest train station is Nottingham Station.
The Centre is a 20 minute walk from the station. Alternatively there is a taxi rank just outside the station and bus routes to Clarendon Street.
Private car and motorcycle users can park in nearby car parks. The closest multi-story car park is Trinity Square.
There is also on-street parking although it is limited during business and university hours due to the busy local area. Fees are £1 per 30 mins.
