Crossroads Women’s Centre in Kentish Town 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. Men ready to work with women in a mutually supportive way are welcome.
We support mothers and other carers on whom families and communities depend most to get through the worst of times. Visitors from every age and social background comment on how warm and welcoming the Centre is, and the spirit of co-operation that prevails.
