Sutton Women’s Centre is run by local women for the benefit of local women, and our aim is to empower women in our community to help them achieve their full potential. For over 30 years we have provided local women with a safe space where they can access information, support, advice and education – with on average over 200 women a week accessing our services. Our wide range of services are designed to support women overcome many of the issues and challenges they are confronted by – domestic abuse; the need to develop new skills; lack of self-esteem; lack of self-confidence; and being isolated. All our work empowers women, to help them:
Reduce their isolation
Improve their skills
Improve their health and wellbeing
Improve their life chances

We will be at many of the local summer fayres over the summer and require donations of bottles for our famous Bottle Tombola. Please drop donations to the centre, or get in touch.
We would also welcome volunteers willing to give a couple of hours of their time on a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday to help run the stalls. If you would like to be involved please get in touch.
