Women's Services

We provide our services to people of all faiths, or none, and regardless of their crimes, age, ethnicity, cultural background, gender Identity, sexuality, or disability.


In our dealings with clients, we work with the Criminal's Justice System, never against it, and are committed to working in partnership with statutory and non-statutory organisations.

Supporting Services

We support approximately 20 women a week through our drop-in service on Tuesday and Thursday 10 am to 2 pm, where a light lunch is provided as well as activities and a listening ear.

Support is available around benefits, housing, children, safety, money, debt, health and police or courts involvement. Trained staff and volunteers work alongside onsite specialist agencies to provide advice there and then as well as ongoing 1-1 work if required.


We also provide a free clothes and food bank, pampering sessions, crafts and so on. There are computers to use and play area for young children.  

Community Orders

We work with 175 women per year delivering community orders as an alternative to custodial sentences, enabling them to address their real life issues in order to reduce offending. In partnership with The National Probation Service & BeNCH CRC we deliver Rehabilitation Activity Requirements, Mental Health Treatment Requirements and Unpaid Work Orders (Community Payback). Our criminal justice workers support women to take responsibility for their behavior and to make positive life choices. 

Group Work

​We deliver gender specific, trauma-informed courses which help women work through events experienced and supports them through the recovery process. These courses give women the tools to make better and more positive decisions going forward. Bespoke groups address specific issues such as anger management, domestic abuse, self esteem & confidence.

Language Cafe

15 non-native English speaking ladies regularly attend our weekly classes to improve their language skills in order to integrate into the community and find employment more easily.

It is a rolling syllabus so students can start and end at any time and each learner has a bespoke learning plan enabling women of different native languages and ability to participate at the same.

Gardening and Cookery

We have a roof top garden and allotment based project (C2C Grows) which provide great opportunities to improve mental and physical wellbeing. It gives women a chance to socialise with others, learn new skills and take home fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers which can also be used in our weekly cooking sessions (Cooking on a Budget) or they can take them home to share with their families. 

Since coming to the allotment each week, I have noticed my mood improve and I now have something to look forward to.

One of my joys of being supported by C2C is the indirect feeling of family that is there if you look.

The staff helped me look in the mirror every morning and say ‘I can do this, I want to be better, I am worth it’. I started to believe it.
