Horton Women's Holiday Centre

The Women’s Holiday Centre (WHC) is based in Horton-in-Ribblesdale, and is the only collective, not for profit, co-operatively ran holiday centre for women and children in the UK.

The holiday centre was set up in 1980 as a charitable co-operative, by women involved in feminism and the women’s liberation movement. Since then, this volunteer-run women’s co-op has been making a difference to the lives of thousands of women and children from all over the country, by providing affordable holidays with a sliding scale for payments according to income.
