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.

  • The Honeypot Children's Charity

    The charity’s vision is for every child to make the most of their one chance at childhood.
    Since 1996, Honeypot has been working to enhance the lives of vulnerable children and young carers aged 5-12 years by providing respite breaks and on-going outreach support. They give young carers a break from demanding and stressful responsibilities at home and provide a safe, nurturing environment where children at risk can develop their full potential. Most of the children are young carers who juggle school and growing up with performing a surrogate role at home. Many care for a chronically or terminally ill loved one or have a parent with drug, alcohol or mental health problems.
    Honeypot also works with vulnerable children from homes with extreme social, financial or emotional challenges. They are also often victims of abuse and neglect, and many will be on the Child Protection Register.
    Honeypot offers respite breaks for children throughout the school holidays and every weekend at various facilities in the New Forest, Hampshire and Pen y Bryn in mid-Wales. Here the staff engage with them in a wide range of activities such as swimming in our onsite pools, riding bikes and go karts, trampolining, building dens in the forest and going on bug hunts, looking after the Honeypot pets, arts and crafts, pyjama parties, bedtime stories and trips to the beach or a local theme park.

  • 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.
