Raising hopes and aspirations of Women and Families

We are here to offer support to the most vulnerable women and families by providing them with essential skills and the confidence to truly flourish in life. We provide personalised, holistic and person-centred support, to improve mental and physical well-being, improving access to other facilities & services and acting as a springboard to a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Since 2003, we’ve been working to improve the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged and vulnerable women and their families across Derbyshire.

Here's how we do it...

We help individuals by providing support, information and advice to women with complex needs. We provide a range of;

  • educational workshops
