Women's Group

We have a vibrant and diverse women's drop-in that runs every week on a Tuesday (10am-1pm). It is a place where women from different backgrounds can come together for friendship, support and positive activities such as arts, drama, sewing and cookery.

Women with no recourse to public funding are able to receive one to one support, register for housing and receive a food and toiletries parcel each week.

As part of the drop-in we provide a mother and toddlers' group called Little Stars, which offers a safe space for mums and their children, including soft play, crafts and singing.

Open Door have been working closely with Open Clasp, a women's theatre company who specialise in creating high quality theatre from a female gaze for mixed audiences. A number of women who attend our drop-in contributed to productions developed by Open Clasp including The Space Between Us and Songlines. For more information visit their website
