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.

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.
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, talks about some of the Centre’s current activities. This is a recording of a talk given for Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre on 26th July 2022.
The first six years of the Women's Centre are featured in the newly launched archives of the Wages for Housework Campaign which celebrates its golden anniversary this year. The archives can be viewed at the Bishopsgate Institute.

Xmas hamper 2022

Making Merry Christmas 2022!
The Centre distributed 40 huge food hampers, containing everything to make a delicious Christmas dinner, to destitute and low-income women and children who join in the Centre’s collective self-help services. The hampers were donated by Carmel Charity Foundation, founded by a fashion supplier company based in Kentish Town. Kind volunteers at London Basket Brigade made up and delivered the hampers to women’s homes on 23 December. And our generous friends at Food For All donated 40 children’s presents, all wrapped up and ready for Christmas.

In these very hard times mums much appreciated these contributions:
