Social & Creative Activities at Derby Women’s Centre

Social activities are an important element to the services we offer at Derby Women’s Centre. Our coffee mornings and creative activities are always popular and provide the perfect opportunity to learn new things, build confidence and self esteem and make new friends in the Derby area. Many of the women who have come to Derby Women’s Centre have made firm friendships here and built a support network by attending these activities.

Café Femme – Themed Coffee Mornings

Our themed coffee mornings are an ideal opportunity to meet other women from Derby and Derbyshire. Many women have made new friends and gained confidence through coming to one of our Café Femme coffee mornings. They have served as an ideal first introduction to Derby Women’s Centre for many of our service users, some of whom have gone on to access other services and activities at DWC.

When? 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. Each of our coffee mornings has a different theme.


Knit & Natter Group

Due to popular demand, we reintroduced a new Knit & Natter group on a twice monthly basis. This is a great opportunity to work on a knitting project with like-minded ladies and have a good chat while you do so!  You do not have to knit to come along, you are also welcome to come along just for a chat.

When? On 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, from 10 am to 12 noon. Newcomers are very welcome to get involved at any point! Wool and knitting needles can be provided if you don’t have any.
