The Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Saturday, 19th May, 2018

Chairman’s Welcome

We are a friendly club of approximately 140 British and Commonwealth ladies living and working in Düsseldorf.  Our club also includes a small percentage of  other nationalities including German ladies.  We come from all backgrounds and walks of life, but what we do have in common is a sense of community and fun.  We pride ourselves on being an all-inclusive community and we encourage women of all ages to share life together for our mutual benefit and to ensure that the club, founded in 1946, continues to thrive and meet the needs of English-speaking women.

We believe that we are an important link with home for our members now living in Germany and we are also a life-line to adjusting to life here in Düsseldorf for newcomers.  We can provide members with help and practical advice on situations such as finding schools, where to shop, best restaurants and general survival skills (e.g. finding a doctor and form-filling if your German isn’t good enough) and help you to settle in and make friends here in Düsseldorf.

This website gives a comprehensive overview of the club and its activities, but for more information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!  The committee and I look forward to meeting you soon at one of our regular events.

British Women's Club nominated charities 2018

Whilst we are predominantly a social and a community club, we also undertake charity work.  Below are our two nominated charities for 2018.

  • Marie Curie

    Marie Curie nurses offer free nursing care to people with all terminal illnesses across the UK, as well as support for family and friends. They generally provide one-to-one nursing care and overnight support in your home. They are there to help you and everyone affected by your diagnosis to achieve the best quality of life and support you to keep your independence and dignity for as long as possible. This includes treating or managing pain and other symptoms with medicines, therapies and other specialist approaches. It also means giving emotional support to you and your family when you need it most.
    This nursing care is in partnership with the NHS. You can find out more about the care and support given by Marie Curie nurses on www.mariecurie.org.uk.

  • Pro Kids in Duisburg

    The Pro Kids in Duisburg is a street work café that was founded in 2003 by the Diakonie Duisburg for teenagers and young adults who live mainly on or around the street, having critical living conditions, addictions or social deficits. Pro Kids provides a drug and violence free, safe environment, the very opposite from the street they are used to. These young people are treated with respect in an accepting, encouraging and friendly way which is the main requirement in building a trustworthy contact between them, staff members and volunteers. For more information, please go to www.diakoniewerk-duisburg.org.
