Who we are

Birmingham Crisis Centre is a local charity which provides a safe haven for victims of domestic violence. Our purpose built accommodation provides a home for up to twenty three women and their children in self-contained bed-sitting rooms, each with its own kitchen and bathroom. Communal facilities include a residents’ lounge, laundry, children’s playroom and an outside play area with an all-weather games facility.

A nursery is now a full-time permanent feature of the Centre. It was opened in 1989 when Children in Need made a donation to fund the salary of a part-time playgroup leader for one year.   In the years following  we have relied entirely on donations from generous supporters to fund the nursery.  We hope to be able to expand further on the service when our proposed nursery extension is completed. In the meantime, we were very proud to hear that our nursery was again rated as “Outstanding” by Ofsted in 2015.  

The Centre has a “Moving Forward” project which provides help to those leaving the Centre when it’s unavailable from other sources. The project’s aim is to assist in the process of reclaiming and rebuilding lives, restoring confidence and giving hope for the future.  "Moving Forward" is funded entirely by donations and fund raising events.
