Our centres offer safe, women-only spaces from which key workers and sessional staff provide needs assessment, action-planning, support and case management for women referred by a number of different agencies. Centres also provide a wide range of group programmes, sessional training, workshops and self-help groups. Women can access mentoring support from trained peer mentors (former customers) and are encouraged towards personal growth and development.
