Crossroads Women runs the Crossroads Women’s Centre in Kentish Town. The Centre is a disability-accessible, multi-racial community resource.  We bring together women from different ages, backgrounds and communities to share experiences, learn from and support each other. 

We provide a place of safety and a diversity of self-help services and activities in one place where women are encouraged and can find solutions to problems, even the most difficult – our motto is something can always be done. We support mothers and other carers on whom families and communities depend most to get through the worst of times. Men ready to work with women in a mutually supportive way are  welcome. Visitors from every age and social background comment on how warm and welcoming the Centre is, and the spirit of co-operation that prevails.

Event next week : Crossroads Women's Centre: Making Trouble, Making History, 1975-2022. An online illustrated talk for Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre at 6pm on Tuesday 26thJuly 2022.

Founding member Solveig Francis, tells the story of the Crossroads Women’s Centre, one of the oldest women’s centres in the country, from its origins as a squat in Drummond Street in 1975 up to the present day. Shoda Rackal, a current worker at the Centre, will talk about some of its current activities.  The talk lasts fifty minutes and will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions.  Book your place at this free event HERE.  Information about Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre: Telephone: 020 7974 3860

What do mothers and care givers want? Fill in the survey here! There is an assumption that childcare or elder care is all women need. But we are never asked what we think about how we spend our time and the resources we have/don’t have. This survey is being circulated in different countries and languages.
