In 1983 a small group of women in the Hillingdon area met in each other's homes and encouraged by a Greater London Council (GLC) initiative, formed themselved into the Hillingdon Women's Group, operating on a collective basis. By 2003, this had expanded into the Hillingdon Women's Centre (HWC), which provides both a welcoming base for the members and many services for women in the neighbourhood, but retains the collaborative aspiration of its earliest days, to encourage women from all backgrounds.
A book has been written about the history of the Hillingdon Women's Centre, how it came into being and what the centre has achieved over the years.
