In 1982 a group of local women started meeting at Roundshaw Centre, Wallington and formed a committee with the aim of identifying and progressing the needs of local women.
In December 1983, the Greater London Council awarded a grant to the committee towards the creation of a women’s centre. We then registered as a charity.
After a long search for a suitable property contracts were exchanged on a house at No3 Palmerston Road, Sutton and on 1st May 1985 Sutton Women’s Centre opened its doors for the first time.
Over the years many thousands of women have come through our front door, some as service users, some as management committee members, some as staff, and many as volunteers. It is the experience and commitment of these women who have made us the successful organisation we are today.
We go from strength to strength and extend our thanks to all the women that continue to give us their support, their time, and encouragement.
