We’re Brighton Women’s Centre and we’ve been supporting self-identifying women in Sussex for over 45 years. Our Write for Lifegroup is a project focused on the many benefits of journaling and creative writing for personal wellbeing. Our groups are free and provide a friendly, supportive space for women to explore writing as a way to develop creativity, self-knowledge and confidence.
Write for Life has proved very popular and demand for more writing groups at our centres is high. This project relies entirely on volunteers and resources are extremely limited. We want to build on its success by running more groups, reaching out to more women across Sussex – in particular, homeless women, women who are full-time carers and those with mental health issues.
Our project has been selected by Crowdfunder as part of their Projects That Matter campaign who are generously donating £1000 to our project, if we are able to match this with our own funding. We now need to raise £1000 by May 31st in order to receive this money.
Everyone who donates will be entered into a raffle to win a creative-writing bundle worth £50!
We are also holding a creative journaling evening on 16th May, 6-8pm at The Projects, 8-9 Ship Street, BN1 1AD. Tickets are £10 and can be purchased through our Crowdfunder page by selecting the £10 “Ticket for Write for Life taster evening” Reward.

We have already raised over 50% of our target and thank everyone who has supported us so far, but we still have a long way to go and need your help to ensure we reach our goal!
By donating to our Crowdfunder you will be supporting vulnerable women in Sussex to empower themselves through creative journaling and ensure the longevity of this important service.
