WHISC. For All Women.

The Women’s Health Information & Support Centre (WHISC) is a charity dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of women and their families throughout Liverpool and the surrounding areas.

Last year we had contact with over 13,500 women and provided over 2,500 ‘Listening Ear’ sessions, a no-appointment-needed service for women in distress.

Established in 1984, our experienced and professional team guarantee a warm and friendly welcome, offering an extensive range of information, support and guidance services.

Our busy, city centre Drop-In is the hub of all our services. Here women can join free exercise classes or sign up for health courses. Drop in or call for a chat today.

What’s On

WHISC is open daily for general enquiries. Please feel to drop-in or call 10am-4pm, Monday to Thursday.

From Yoga and Tai Chi to Knitting and Craft, we provide a wide range of classes to help improve wellbeing. As the time given by our wonderful class leaders is done so voluntarily, we are able to provide many classes for FREE.

To check that the class is running and that the time is unchanged, please call us on  0151 707 1826 on the day you plan to visit.
