Women and Girls Network (WGN) is a free, women-only service that supports women in London who have experienced violence, or are at risk of violence.

We offer counselling, advocacy and advice for women and girls who have experienced gendered violence, including sexual and domestic violence.

Our overall aim is to promote, preserve and restore the mental health and well-being of women and girls, to empower them to make a total and sustainable recovery from their experiences of violence.

WGN offers free counselling to women in London who have experienced gendered violence. Please see below for details of our different counselling services and what they cover.

We offer advocacy and practical support through the criminal justice system for women who have reported their experiences to the police, or are considering making a report.

Although many people can act as an advocate (friend, relative, member of staff) there are advocacy services available that can be accessed through the Trust.These advocates are trained and independent.
