Our Values


We provide non-judgemental support to women no matter what their circumstances are or the particular challenges they face.


Women of all ages and social backgrounds may need help to overcome barriers towards a safe and healthy future. Our support is available to all women regardless of age, ethnicity and religion.


We never turn a woman in desperate need away and will signpost to other appropriate services providers to offer the support which she needs if we can’t help.


We are accountable and transparent about the outcomes of our programmes and impact of investments from funders and supporters.


We are open to developing new approaches and partnerships that will enable us to enhance the lives of more women who could benefit from our support across Derby.


We support the whole person – not just one issue – assessing each service user’s particular needs and life goals and work with them as long as they need our support.
