Self Help

Self-help and Contacts:
In our centre, women have the opportunity to meet other women, which allows them to extend their social networks.
Furthermore, one of our rooms can be used as a meeting place for self-help groups. If needed, we will offer support with organizing the group, group rules etc.


International breakfast:
Once a week, we meet for breakfast. This is an opportunity to talk and to meet new people.
Our shared language is German. Breakfast is free of charge.
You are welcome to join us!
When? Wednesdays, 10 – 11:30 h
Where? Women’s Counselling Centre, Robert-Koch-Str. 18, 45879 Gelsenkirchen


Clothing bank:
Women with little income (e.g. AsylbLG, ALG II) can make use of the clothing bank in exchange for a small fee. In emergency situations (escalation of domestic violence, refugees) we try to provide the basics (clothing, school material), within our means.
Opening hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays 2 pm – 4 pm
You can also phone us to arrange an individual appointment.

You find us at Neumarktgasse 1.
Entry: Please walk through the blue gate and down the stairs on the left.
