General Support

At Women’s Work we recognise that mental and emotional health is as essential to well-being as good physical health. Along with our specific projects, we also offer more general support to the women who attend as part of our holistic, person-centred approach.

This support can come in various ways from counselling sessions to food parcels, we also have an extensive list of partner organisations who offer advice and support in more specialist areas such as finance and debt or housing issues.

We encourage women to attend our wellness sessions to improve their confidence and emotional well-being, and reduce social isolation, some of our current workshops include Yoga, Calm Your Mind, Creative Dance and Expressive Arts.

For mothers of preschool age children, we hold a coffee morning where mums can meet and chat to each other, gain access to support where needed and offer a safe place for their children to play whilst they do so. We also host a weekly Check In and Chat for our women, an informal drop in session where they can chat to other service users, peer mentors and project workers are on hand for advice where needed.

What our empowered women have to say...

Thank you to Gemma and all staff for making me feel welcome. I felt very anxious at the start but now I have finished I feel like I want to keep coming back. It’s a safe place for me to learn and grow and I enjoy all of the sessions that are there. The staff are lovely, and kind and caring and all show support to you. It doesn’t matter what you are there for because everyone is together working through it all.

I have a better understanding of my emotions and feelings, and am now calmer. I learnt how to deal with things better

Empowered Women

The Change Programme has given me an understanding of life, relationships, the world, myself and empowerment. I felt heard and not judged, and also felt a deep self-realisation and knowledge of self

I joined the charity because the belief and values that were used to support and encourage vulnerable women and families are also a part of my beliefs and values. Also, the programmes that were developed are encouraging and useful. The staff are committed and helpful. Here at Women’s work the goal is to make a difference in individual lives and by far that is the best part of volunteering for me.

I liked coming to the freedom programme because I knew I wasn’t alone and everyone wouldn’t judge me. I have learnt a lot and wish I could have learned this when I was at secondary school because then I would have known.
