About Us:

The Huggett Women's Centre is provided by nia in partnership with Barking and Dagenham Council for Voluntary Services (B&DCVS) and Disability Association Barking and Dagenham (DABD UK).

What we do?
There are a range of activities including regular drop-ins (Tuesdays from 10am – 12 pm and Thursdays from 2pm – 4pm) and support groups, specialist advocacy, counselling, awareness raising, creative activism, learning sessions, and one off special events for all women and for girls aged 11 and above. Children are welcome to come along too. All sessions are free. To use the crèche, please contact us for availability. Activities change regularly so it is best to contact the centre directly. Come and join us. Get in touch. Get involved.

Our Ethos:
The Centre offers a vibrant, accessible and welcoming environment for all women and girls to be supported to build positive relationships and share their energy. We support women and girls to face the multiple and complex disadvantages that they experience. In particular those relating to inequality between women and men, race, class, sexuality, disability, domestic violence and abuse, sexual violence and exploitation.

What's on?
Art and crafts, Coffee mornings, Counselling, Drop-in groups, Employment skills, Focus groups, Girl's Group (11-14), Mother/Carer and child stay and play, Social events, Specialist support groups (Ashiana), Support groups for disabled women (DABD), Therapeutic courses, Training to external service, Volunteering opportunities, Women's groups, Women's workshops and Young women's groups (15-18)

We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service to open in the evenings.  We particularly want funding to employ a full time creche/play  worker because so many of of the women who use the service have small children, and struggle to find childcare. 

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Ms Maria Sookias
