About us

Helping Women for over 30 years

West Hampstead Women’s Centre (WHWC) has provided a supportive, women only space since 1984. Building a brighter future for women, giving us the opportunity to thrive.

We support marginalised women’s journeys, however traumatic, into the mainstream and we work to bring communities together.

For many women just walking into the Centre can be a big step but once they arrive they realise that they are in a safe and supportive environment.
