Groups marked * are women-only or have women-only activities. Our services for women are open to anyone who self-identifies as a woman some or all of the time and is lesbian, bisexual or questioning their sexual orientation. This includes non-binary or gender-fluid people who want to access a women's space. We do not knowingly list groups or organisations who discriminate against trans people.
Please note that as a result of the pandemic some of the groups may have changed the way they operate.
