Chairman’s Welcome

We are a friendly club of approximately 160 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.

Whilst we are predominantly a social and a community club, we also undertake charity work.  Below are our two nominated charities for 2023

    The Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice cares for children and young adults whose lives are sadly too short, both in their own homes and at the hospice in North Anston. The hospice was opened in 2004, having eight special bedrooms and an own room for parents. It is a home from home for families facing the toughest of times. There is a comfortable lounge and beautiful gardens, soft play, arts and crafts, music therapy and much more.
    Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice are proud to have received a rating of ‘Outstanding’ for being a caring service.


    Pro Retina is the largest and oldest non-profit patient’s association for people with retinal diseases and their relatives. Their goal is to help patients cope with their disease and to live autonomously, plus supporting research.
    What Pro Retina offers is the chance for various regional groups to get in contact with others, assistance with diagnosis of the retinal disease, many events involving legal topics, where to find assistance or just the opportunity to meet up. They support research into possible therapies and clinical studies, help with day to day living with an eye disease and information on legal rights.

Christmas Cards

The BWC donates each year to one British and one German charity
